    Smile First good nights sleep.

    Hello all,

    I suffer from some back injuries and I can not ground camp anymore. So I purchased a Clark Jungle Hammock NA and tried it out in the back yard. Pain meds have a very weird effect on me, they keep me up and up and up. It was very interesting to watch all the visitors that come to the yard at night. Dogs and cats wondered by sniffing but clueless. A rather large skunk spent time digging for food all the no wiser to me. Just before daybreak another animal entered the yard and was poking around the garage door with a screwdriver I startled the crap out of him from under the canopy of my dogwoods that I hung from. Second night was boring and my neighbor said he thought he had heard a snoring sound so I must have been in a good place that night. Hammocks, yea the're a good thing.

    Welcome to HF I"ll bet Clark never thought about touting their hammocks as intrusion alarm devices.

    Maybe you'll be able to use less or no pain meds if you sleep in the hammock all the time.

    So who was poking around with a screwdriver? Did you scare of a burglar?

    I'm a month removed from spine surgery...and the hammock is the only place i can get a good nights sleep (pain free)

    after a few nights of sleeping in you new hammock..your back will feel much better and you will use less pain meds
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    I am hopeful that the back will be less of a problem as time goes on and the wife said to hang it in the house if I think it will be better for me. Time will tell. I don't know who it was who tried to get in but I like his taste in tools, Craftsman orange handle pro screwdriver. Now if only a Snap On tool thief would like to knock out a window maybe and .....bring me/drop a torque wrench I'd be happy with that.
