    I paid a lot of money for my bed, my sister is now enjoying it. Had I known that I would sleep better in a $60 hammock than in a $2000 bed...not to mention the money I've saved in chiropractic and massage therapy bills.

    So why does my doc look at me like I'm nuts--I'm used to my wife looking at me like that--when I've told him that that back of mine which hurts and has hurt for 30+ years is quickly relieved by even just a couple hours in the hammock?

    Went to Fort Valley Va. this past weekend to pickup the G-daughter for the summer. Spent 2 nights in motel beds, 1 going & 1 returning, it almost killed me. Did get 3 nights in the hammock in the backyard. Fantastic being able to hang outside again! Need to work on getting the trutledog stand down to a shorter travel package.

    Yea....mine is called my husband Seems we all have a common goal here on the forums, but when married you have to keep convincing your spouse that it would be better to be sleeping in seperate hammocks full time. He's still not convinced

    I mistyped “turtledog” in my search and wound up on this thread.
    I've been sleeping in my WB Traveler for almost a year now due to my back. Chiropractor said it is better b/c the spinous process (that piece of a vertebrae that sticks out) on my S1 vertebrae is missing and the spinous process on my L5 jams into that spot when I lay flat. That causes nerves to go haywire leading to very tight lower back muscles. The hammock provides a bit of a curve in my lower back which apparently fixes the issue. I'm guessing some other folks might have something similar going on so far as irritated nerves leading to muscle tightness goes. My wife thought I was crazy at first but since I snore she got used to the idea really fast. So the move to a hammock fixed two problems. Long live Warbonnet.

    That's because you've scared the neighbors away with your snoring

    I suffer the same situation though, sleep in a bed, back pain. Sleep in the hammock and I'm good to go.

    My bed is comfortable but when my wife moves I wake up. I can't go back to sleep and have to go to the couch in the next room to get back to sleep.

    I really need to install a hammock in the next room...

    SilvrSurfr you're the smartest man I know! In all seriousness I wish I could hang indoors. My hammock is much better then my bed.

    The last really, really good nights sleep I have had was the last night of FH3. I have slept on my bed(wife really likes the bed, me not so much), on the couch(bit better than bed), and naps on floor and a few days in hospital room recliners.
    My back freaked on me last Thursday and put me on the couch since the bed is not good for the back pain. Good for hip pain, but not the back, too soft. I'm ready to get back to that wonderful feeling I had last back on January 21st, Monday, after waking from the last time in my hammy. Ooooh, I miss the hammy.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you
