    I found that a Tylenol PM before sacking out not only eased some of the aches of the hike from the day, but eased the transition to sleep. (the lack of pain also helped the comfort level as well).

    Just a suggestion.

    Its funny to me how the first question most people ask me about my hammock is "doesn't that hurt your back?"

    As a side note, I've found a way to sleep comfortably on my side (being a stomach/side sleeper myself), and discovered that a hammock has an interesting form-fitting effect that I hadn't noticed before. Can anyone explain to me how a (relatively) inflexible ripstop nylon hammock conforms to the shape of my body? (just curious, y'know)

    Said it before but maybe it bears repeating, I find that falling asleep in a hammock is actually more difficult than in a bed. BUT once asleep the hammock provides a more restful, pain-free sleep.

    It's worth learning how to sleep in a hammock.
