    Cannot go to ground anymore

    Doggonnit! Because of my hammock, I can no longer sleep on the ground.

    My Warbonnet is in for repairs so I pulled out my old backpacking tent and sleeping pad for a ten day Christmas kayak trip down the Intra-coastal in South Carolina.

    Yesterday afternoon I set off but did not get too far because I wanted to set camp before dark. Ate dinner at dusk and went to bed.

    I woke up after an hour then tossed and turned ... no position was comfortable ... until 1:00 AM. By then I knew I couldn't get any more sleep. Breaking camp in the dark, I paddled back to the put-in under the light of the waning moon.

    So, now its 4:30 AM and I'm sitting in my car hoping to catch a cat nap before sunrise. Then, first thing, I'm off the Charleston to buy a hammock.

    Guess I'm hooked on hanging. I always sleep like a baby in a hammock.

    I think the treetotrail guys are near you-- you can go pick up a switchback and put a smile on your face.. Also- Dale owns a bar-- so you can go get a drink-- watch a football game-- get a hammock-- THENNNNNN off on your adventure lol.. I feel your pain-- the idea of sleeping on the ground just sounds like misery.. Funny how we get spoiled and things we thought were the way to go, seem soooo not the way to go now .... Ground-- no thanks-- ill hang in the trees

    LOL! You're a punny fellow.
