    Do you smoke cigarettes in your hammock?

    Hammocks are, of course, great for relaxing. And different people have different attitudes about this version of "smoking in bed." [With apologies to Nina Simone, who smoked on record, life and song on that subject. eg: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KLY-73C6-_c]

    Not after my first night in a hammock, I somehow burned a small hole in it

    I don't smoke in my house anyway so no biggie.

    I use to, but then I stopped smoking, so now I don't.

    I do, but I make sure to hang over side a little.

    Even when I smoked I hated the smell of smoke so it's a big NO for me...

    I sit in my hammock and smoke cigars, but no cigarettes.
    I wouldn't lay down with my cigar to smoke, but sitting and watching the sunset with a stogie is an awfully peaceful thing.

    I found a pipe is a good match for a hammock. They both really let you stop and think for a while. And there's no ash to be dropped.

    I don't smoke but in terms of buying one - i would consider, if the deal was really good and no damage. But most of the time I would not no.

    I don't smoke laying down in mine, but it is very relaxing to sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds with some tobacco before getting ready for bed.
    Leave me alone, I'm only talking to my dog today.

    I may be outnumbered, but never outmanned.

    Funny because I bought a terrific Clark from an HF member who was meticulous about describing defects in his description here, the only one mentioned being a single tip-of-finger-sized hole in the bug netting. Otherwise, took great care of his gear, and not a tear or loose seam anywhere.....but accidents will happen. (Every guy line and tensioner was carefully tied and bundled when received, and the tarp was snake-skinned, gratis.)

    I jumped on a great deal.....until I opened the box and the cigarette tars reek hit me, and I closed and sealed the box back up. Seller hadn't explained the cause of that hole -- not tear --and I hadn't thought to ask. Duhhh. (Location of hole? Lay on back, bend left arm at elbow sharply and swing forearm with "thumb" to the outward, to the left. <smile>)

    Three thorough washings --hot water with quality laundry detergent on two, and pine-oil soap on another, of both tarp and hammock, and then a few days of air, and it smelled clean. (I suspect netting captures and hold a lot of aroma, especially if you are smoking inside of it.)

    I didn't complain to seller about the condition, because he, as a smoker, probably camped with other smokers.

    That's why the poll. And because I just received a TTTtrailgear on-circuit-on-loan that I must air for several days, or wash, before I will put down garments or me-wearing-wool in/on. Tobacco tars and addititves (and likely from unfiltered cigarettes.)
