    NX-150 First night in hammock

    I hung my hammock up in the backyard to give it a try. I got in the hammock at 10:00pm and came out at 3:15am to go into the house. Went to my bedroom and went back to sleep. There is a small hwy about a 1/4 of mile from my house. The traffic noise woke me up. I couldn't believe how loud the traffic was at that time of night. It's never that loud during the day. I could hear the cows mooing on the other side of that hwy. lol Earplugs will help I suppose. I'm sure there wont be noises like this out in the woods.

    I've got to figure out how to prevent my blankets from balling up under me and my small pillow from sliding down. I assume this has been discussed so I just need to do some searching.

    Overall I'm happy.... just need to figure somethings out.

    There is a small hand hold on the inside head side of Clark hammocks. You can easily put a line thru it, attach it to your pillow and then it won't slide down anymore.

    Thanks... Yeah I saw that hand hold. That was pretty smart of Clark to install that.

    I also use the hand hold to keep things in place. I put a small grommet in my blanket or sleeping bag and use a short length of shock cord between the hand hold and grommet.
