    Converted

    I recently received 2 HH Explorer Deluxes & 2 HH Scouts. 1 Explorer for me, 1 Explorer for my son & the 2 Scouts for my daughters. The girls did not know they were coming. I set them up in the backyard this morning to show the kids. They love them!

    This afternoon, my oldest daughter asks if she can replace her bed with the hammock. I think she's converted.

    We have a "field test" this weekend at the local state park.

    It's great when your kids like the same thing as you. Enjoy

    Hmmmm, hammock bed. Not comfy for two.... I bet this will aid with dealing with a daughter in the teen years.

    Welcome to comfy life above ground. Good choices on the hammocks too!

    Wish my wife was easy to convert. She doesn't do the hammock thing well.

    The field test went great! Light rain all night long and mid 50's. Everyone stayed dry, warm and comfortable.

    We're packing up today to go family camping with a group. Campsite area has no trees. After I told the kids that we would be in tents not hammocks, there was much gnashing of teeth. "But tents are soooo uncomfortable! I want to hang in the hammock!"

    The assimilation is complete.

    Time to start building Turtledog Stands so you can still use the hammocks. Check out this thread http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ight=Turtledog
