After hearing all the ravings of how well people sleep in hammocks, I think I'd like to give it a try. I've never been a great ground-dweller, despite MANY nights of experimenting with different gear. So I figure, why not give hammocks a try?
I was wondering if there is anyone in the Madison, Wisconsin area that has a hammock that they'd show me and let me hang in for a little bit. If possible, I'd like to try out a few different brands of hammocks before I go dropping some money on one.
Don't know if this matters or not (esp. for lightweight hammocks?) but I'm a bigger guy at 215lbs. As for myself, I'm not particularly looking for an ultralight hammock; I want the one that I'll be most comfortable in.
Thanks and I'll take any advice you guys can throw at me (what am I getting myself into?!).
