    add me to the list, long time kayaker (used to be a guide in Bar Harbor) and on the new river in NC for a while. Now just recreational with the grandkids...hammocks take up way less romm than the tents!!

    kayak/hammocking

    I mostly backpack, but canoe/hammock in the Adirondacks and kayak/camp at Cape Lookout and Shackleford Banks (would love to hammock there, but sand, sand dunes...no trees, no rocks... bummer)

    I have a low volume 14' touring kayak and a hammock rig fits much better than tents so you're gonna love that! Paddle camping is my favorite way to spend a weekend. I don't have to count grams and I can take drinks and better food without worrying about how much it weighs. But most of all I can take a real chair!

    Would love to kayak camp one of these days. Right now it's just whitewater. I actually got into hammocking in order to take a class and participate in the Midwest Freestyle Championship in Wausau, WI. I didn't have a tent and hammocks seemed way more comfortable. I was nice and comfortable, sitt'n high and dry, when the camping area got flooded out by some rain. Come to think of it I tried my first hammock while taking a break from a kayaking class.

    Another kayak-camper here, although options are a bit more limited in Colorado.

    I'm in Colorado, let's do the South Plate from Plateville to the confluence with the North Plate.
    This spring ill be on the White and the summer trip will be the long one.
    In the kayak iv always used a tent. Lake Powell and the Lower Colorado, not many trees. I'm hoping Montana will be different.

    I'm a boater/hanger from South Texas. I primarily canoe, but do some whitewater kayaking. A lot of my boating is in the Big Bend region of West Texas, where trees can be hard to find, so I usually end up sleeping on the ground out there. However, on trips in Central Texas, I really like hammock camping because it can be awful hard to find a flat spot to camp on the river banks.

    I really love overnighting on the river. With a canoe, you can haul so much gear that you get pretty much the best of both worlds: the wilderness experience of backpacking and the luxuries and conveniences of car camping.

    Here's my set up from a trip where we car camped the night before a day trip on the Llano River. The uprights on my truck rack come in handy when tree selection is sparse.

    Took a 135 mile trip in my kayak down the Great Pee Dee River back in 2004. Hung four nights in my hammock along the way. Haven't had as much fun since that trip.

    Don't argue with the alligator until after you cross the river.

    Hey Raoul, where's my hammock in this picture? Bad photographer but an awesome trip. Oh.. and welcome to the forum. Glad you finally signed up.
