    Get a stud finder, find the appropriate studs, insert eyebolts (use the hanging calculator for smart phones for height vs distance for your preferred hammock) appropriately, move bed out to the back yard and have a bonfire! Hang and sleep comfortably ever after!!!

    Hidden bonus, no dust bunnies under the bed ever again!

    That is how it started with me, came home from a 4 day hang and spent one night in the bed, and set up in the yard that day and stayed there for 117 nights. The reason I stopped, is that I now have an inside place to hang EVERY NIGHT.

    I know of at least one guy who has a hammock hung over his side of the bed. The arrangement has worked for him and the wife for many years.

    okay, just an update...

    last night, Oshtrayliyan time, i spent mh first night sleeping in a hammock at home.
    set up tied to the patio poles.
    Now this isnt my camping nx150 hammock i spent the last month in the Northern Territory, this was a cheap 30 dollar( u want 'appy finish) actually quiet good quality cheap hammock.

    i shall say it wasnt as comfy as the clark....but hey, i havnt used it as much and the comfort value may change with usage....
    also it isnt as "long term" as a clark....or hh or bb or major "minor"brand
    it IS ok as a cheapy!!!!


    it HAS!!!!!



    CONNVINCED ME THAT HAMMOCKING<---- READ THAT!!!!





    hammocking is right for me.....



    after 4 weeks doin it tuff in a clark, i come home to a cumfy bed that just shits me and causes pain!!!!
    i mkean 2 weeks ive put up with it!!
    but now ive set up with a cheapo hammock and i admit, when i go home, there WILL bve eye bolts out the wall.......there WILL be hammocking bliss in the lovin room!!!!

    the problem is, now im home im finding the bed to be uncomfortable and im waking with lower back pains.

    is it just me, do i need a period of readjustment or should i just set up the hammock out back and jump in?

    You answered your own question.Hang yourself in the backyard.
