Jocko here. Been a member for a while and after adequate reading I am ready to give hammock camping a go. Actually I convinced the Mrs. to come along also. We have another year left in Italy and we have seen countless places that would be great to stay for the night, but I am not one for dragging along the kitchen sink and a tent just in case. We figure that a small hammock campsite could be packed into a Rubbermaid tote and thrown in the car "just in case". For solo trips I can pack what I need along in motorcycle luggage. Excited? Yes. Going to give it a few backyard runs before a night in the woods? Absolutely.
