    Hammock Etiquette

    I would like to go to a group hang and check out other setups.
    I would like to try out a WBBB just to see what it feels like. I have a WBRR
    and I would like other hangers to know how great it is.

    There in lies the problem. as much as I would like to try their hammock
    and them to know what mine feels like I have a slight aversion to anyone
    being in my bed. Its my personal sleeping space, my pillow,my quilt,my hammock. Am I alone with those feelings?
    I know I would not ask to try someones bed but if they made the offer to me I would do it and probably
    return the offer to them. However I know I would cringe a bit when they
    plopped down and rolled around in my new RR.

    I feel a bit better about letting someone try my DIY or my ENO, but still!
    I hope its not just me. I would easily share a tarp or suspension or cooking
    gear but just not my bed.

    My girlfriend feels the same way.
    I had to buy her a replacement hammock because too many people had tried her hammock. You aren't alone.
    Trust nobody!

    I don't let people have their shoes on in my hammock. I also make them ease into the hammock and not plop down. Also no excessive swinging. Those are my only rules. I don't want anyone messing up my hammock that I made.

    my dog sleeps in my hammock i don't care if somebody wants to try my hammock, but don't touch my tools.
    i KNOW it's just a hammer, but its MY hammer.
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    I don't mind as long as their shoes come off as well as anything sharp. I also take out my TQ and pillow.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.

    Never mess with another man's tools. As for my hammock, it has seen more people lay on it than a cheap *****. I just ask that you take off your shoes.

    As you see there's a range of feelings about this. You shouldn't feel bad about your aversion to having others try your hammock, though. Just tell people how you feel; people will generally respect that.

    If I haven't known you for a year - your not allowed to try my hammock. And you better be dressed like this if I give you permission.
