Just did an overnight kayakout campout last
night in SW Florida. 9 people, 8 tents and my hammock (HH Expedition with carabiners/rings). Most of the kayakers had never seen or been in a hammock before. Tents ranged from Walmart specials, Goodwill bargains (which worked well), a really nice new tarptent and 3 top of the line (all the bells and whistles) high end tents with the newest Neo- mattresses, etc. Had my friends try the hammock, then everyone went off to a campfire, dinner and to sleep. Had perfect conditions--a small island with light 65-70 F breeze, no mosquitoes, and even had dolphins surfacing offshore last night. 8 out 8 tenters woke and preferred sleeping in the hammock to the tents. Tom Hennessy is going to be getting some orders soon from SW Florida.
