    How many nights have you slept in a hammock?

    As a new hanger I am curious just how much time people have logged in the various hammocks they own.

    I currently have 2 weeks in a JRB bridge and about a month in my blackbird. Every night I gain another night of experience in my blackbird. Anybody have more than 10 years? It should be interesting to see just how much hang time has been accumulated by everyone.

    I'll be a low answer... 5 nights but several naps and probably 25-30 set up and hang out for a little while...

    250+ in the last 4 years in10 different states, but its the conditions i have slept in that have taught me the most. -5 degrees to 95 degrees w/snow, rain, hail and the skunk. i don't count inside and backyard.
    have fun

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    Probably years if you add it all up. I spent at least 6 months in one stretch living in a Hennessy and there was a few months on my AT thru-hike attempt. Add all the other nights and you get quite lot of time wasted laying around.

    Unfortunately only a few nights out on the trail but inside I have just over 6 months. I started Xmas eve ’11 and still going… Up to my surgery on May 26, I set it up every night and took it down every morning. So for when I hit the AT I’ll have all the kinks out. As of now I can pretty much set it up blindfolded in a hail storm! lol
