    I feel there will always be a mix of ground-dwellers and hangers, but I do see hammocks comprising a much, much larger share of the total backpacking community than in the past. Accessories like the Speers Snuggler underquilt (a no draft option), the JRB tarptents for hammocks and the multiuse JRB No-Sniveler have brought hammock hanging into the main stream. Events like Ed Speer's weekend hangs have done a great deal to foster understanding by those curious about hammocking. Ed deserves a huge amount of the credit for bringing hammocking into the mainstream IMO. Design innovations like HH's bottom entry, JRB's hammock, Warbonnet's new design and Speer's improvements on side entry have made hammock easier to use and have reduced the learning curve.

    Of course it means we'll all have to get hammock stands too. Unless you can get to the campgrounds first to pick out your trees!

    There aren't many where I am but people who do see my hammock change their thinking. One thing that has broadened peoples knowledge has been the internet and sites like this.

    When I get to make a trip to Australia one of these days, it's good to know that can hook up with a hammock hanger to take me on a hike!

    One good thing about up north here (or is it south for most?) you won't need any under quilt. I'm looking at taking my youngest to Hinchinbrook Island in october. Look it up on Google Earth - it's rated as one of the best wilderness hikes in Australia.
