I've spent many hours over the past few weeks researching hammock camping. I've been unable to decide if I truly want to bother. Or throw away hard earned cash if I don't like hanging. I do have a hammock on my deck at my S. Oregon ranch. I seldom use it although it is comfortable. That's the limit of my experience with hammocks. I've never even seen anyone w/a hammock in decades of hiking!
Please do not confuse my request for help as coming from someone who has already decided to buy a hammock and is simply looking for reassurance. I am truly undecided. I am *not* looking for an argument!
WTS; I will mention that the main reason I don't own one (yet?) is the weight penalty. I've noticed that claimed weights and actual weights, given my perceived needs, vary widely! I admit that perhaps I need a paradigm shift. So, let's please discuss weight for now and move on from there if needed.
TIA for your help.
