    Fulltime hammockers?

    Into my third week of sleeping fulltime in a hammock and just curious as to how many others are.
    Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.

    Quite a few folks are full time.....I wish I could make the switch....I sleep worse and worse every night it seems in my bed at home and yearn for the nights on the trail in my hammock.

    Its starting to look like I'll be sleeping in the garage full time soon. I sleep so much better in a hammock. I don't need my CPAP. I'm not hurting when I stand up in the morning. Life is just better when I sleep in a hammock.

    There is no space in the bedroom without getting rid of the bed, and that just isn't going to happen. So.... I'll be clean out the garage over the next few weeks and making space for me to hang.

    Cold nights, inside in a Brazilian with Yeti and down top quilt--bliss! Hot nights (no AC) outside in the WBBB and Yeti if needed. Love getting up and not being stiff and achy. Went on vacation, had to sleep in a bed, and quickly recalled, as I tossed and turned trying fruitlessly to get comfortable, just WHY I went to the hammock full time.

    Herbalist! See the Turtlelady's portable bamboo stand set up in a hotel room:

    and a thread on how to make a portable stand for yourself when you travel:
