    I would venture to say that I get 4 weeks + throughout the year. Not nearly enough.
    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.

    That would be great! Can we switch lives? LOL just kidding...but not really.

    I hung last night in my back yard as part of my never-ending quest to push my 40 Incubator to the limit. But it only dropped to 39 last night. Sure was great though!

    I try to hang out back a few times each month, and a 3- or 4-day weekend trip at least once each month September thru May.

    I am really new to hammock camping how ever BIGFOOT isn't. I have had my switchback for over a year maybe 2 it was one of the first they made. Due to health reasons I wasn't able to go out. BF hangs all the time in front of my house. Now I cannot wait to go. Wwe are taking a trip actually this weekend. BF is trying like mad though to put in hook in my bedroom wall....

    I've been trying to get out at least once a month for at least an overnighter. That doesn't always work, but it's worth trying for.

    Hopefully, I'll be able to go on a couple of longer trips in the Spring and Summer next year.

    I am lucky to get once a month. I have 2 small kids and a wife that works a few nights a week from 5-midnight for an emergency veterinarian. It makes it hard to get out there even in the back yard. This summer it was hotter than Hell's attic too, so I wasn't very motivated!

    I hang my net-less DIY hammock in my porch and I'm in it at least once a day.I get out in the woods about once every 2 months, more in the summer and less in the winter.

    Don't get to overnight as much as I'd like. Couple times a month.

    But I spend at least an hour in my indoor every afternoon. Siesta style.

    I sleep out in the backyard at least 2 or 3 times a week. I also spend a lot of my weekends on the trail, so I'd say 4 or 5 times a week on average. Slept out back last night (got down to 51) It was awesome!
