    I'm afraid you get points off for bouncing off of said surfaces when your hammock falls...

    Yep I've been corresponding with him through YouTube and he says it's been going great with his hammock and other equiptment. His base weight is 15 lbs I believe. Oh he said he's converted a bunch of ground dwellers!

    No kidding! I remember waking early in the morning at Galehead Hut and there was an early-rising woman sitting at the table I was sleeping on drinking her morning coffee.

    I just did an E2E of the long trail and hammocked the whole way. Meet a few thru hikers who were using hammocks and, they were really enjoying them. So as others have experienced and said its totally doable. I Also always use a hammock on all of my section hikes and its always been easy to find two trees to hang from
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
