    side sleeping direction

    I was curious...for those side sleepers out there, do you sleep on the same side as you do in bed at night? I tend to sleep on the opposite side and was wondering if there are others that do, or if its just a weird thing I do.

    I tend to sleep on what ever direction is "in" (so I face the center of the hammock). In my Hennessy that is a different side from what I sleep on at home.

    I sleep on both sides, but hardly ever on my back in a bed. In my WBBB, I find that I sleep on my back a lot cause there's a super-comfortable sweet spot there. But I do sleep on both sides, although I find it's easier and more comfortable to sleep on my left side than on the right.

    I guess, I sleep however in both a bed and hammock.

    My DIY gathered end and Brazilian let me sleep on either diagonal, providing side sleeping flexibility, but I usually sleep on my right side just like in bed.

    I strive to find a site where I can pitch my tarp in porch mode for a great view. I sleep on my side facing this open view. I'm sort of an omni-side sleeper I reckon.

    I sleep facing out, ie not towards the rest of the hammock, most of the time. But I have woken up in a different direction than I fell asleep. But I can sleep on which ever side.

    In my BB I sleep on both sides stretched out and sometimes curled up on my sides and on my back. In my bed I mostly sleep on my stomach.

    In my ENO DN or Grand Trunk Double I sleep on my back, just can not get a comfortable position trying to sleep on my sides in these hammocks.
