    I enjoy sleeping in my backyard. My house is at the end of a dead end street and not only do I own the lot behind me, but I also own the one next to me. Two-thirds of my acreage is wooded so I have plenty of choices of places to hang my hammocks. To make it even better, my land is bordered by two creeks.

    It's nice not having to drive somewhere to hang.

    Don't argue with the alligator until after you cross the river.

    I do love my hammock for camping but I can understand those who like tents too. I have had some awesome tents. The problem with them us mostly weight. The really light ones I have had were either way to small or slippery to the extreme using silnylon. I like a tarp very much and before doing the hammock thing I was camping under a tarp in a bivy.

    I used to setup my tents in the yard when I was a kid, because I was excited.
    I used to setup my hammocks in the yard when I first got started, because I was excited.

    I setup my hammocks in the yard now, because....I can!

    The wife actually wanted the hammock hung in the backyard for the weekend. With the tarp, to keep the sun off her.

    It was never taken down, I have a few hours before I'm supposed to be at work...

    I think I'll take the kindle to a little place I know between a couple trees.

    Both hammocks are strung up in the back yard. Presently one of them is quite full of my wife.

    She's out there in her mummy bag, beanie hat, and a fuzzy fleece blanket.

    The woman actually looked happy when I last checked on her.
