    sleeping two

    OK, I just got my first ENO. It's the double.

    How many people have actually used this thing to sleep two people? Could two of us at 130lbs each and 5'6" sleep in this thing? I have not tried it yet, but might consider it.

    Cannot find any other way to cuddle without being on the ground. LOL

    this could be a long and winded reply .... but in the end

    try it out and see for yourself is the most sound advice.

    Some people can and do, others have once and wont ever again.

    Depends on just how much you like to cuddle!


    Cheers.

    Yes it can be done, but Turk is right; it depends on the sleepers. Add another hundred pounds and another 6" and that's pretty much Genuine Draft and my numbers. We very much enjoy it, but I guess we're both cuddlers at heart. We spent at least 3 weeks nightly on the AT double sleeping in my Trek Light Double.

    But, she basically lays about half way over the top of me. I'm her human uq. Not for everyone to be sure, but we enjoy it.

    That's awesome. Thanks.

    I will definitely have to try it sometime.

    My wife and I tried sleeping in a double, not very comfy. 16" spreader bars between two gathered end hammocks should do the trick. I have found that this spacing is just about right for us.

    It can be done, and it can be quite a bit of fun. If you are a big time cuddler, go for it. Give it a try sometime but have backup just in case.


    This thread makes me miss my hammock buddy

    My wife can barely tolerate all my tossing and turning in a king sized bed. Sharing a hammock is definitely not on the radar.
