    New To Hammocks

    Work always kept me busy so camping was put on the back burner. Now I am retired and have a lot of catching up to do. Bought a tent and sleeping bag, but found getting up in the morning and crawling out of the tent difficult because of age and sore joints. Tried hammock and it solved the problem now a happy camper

    Deja Vu all over again!!!
    Although I didn't wait for retirement as Scouts kept me busy for about 12 years before that.
