    Lol BOTH! She's my APBT Dakoda. She tries to get in the hammock with me but once her front half is in she can't figure out how to get her rear in...! Lol
    My lil Schipperke does get in with me though... He loves it! He'll stay all night long!

    That wasn't my first reason but since I have switched I don't wake up multiple times a night, no stiff neck/back when I awake etc...

    I originally started to sleep full time last year when I was planning an AT thru (supposed to start this coming April) but with my knee surgery last May I'm postponing the thru till I'm as close to my full strength as I can get... I figured I would set it up and take it down (inside) every night so when I get on the trail I'll be able to do everything nesessary in cold, night, storm with no surprises. I'll know it backwards and forwards blindfolded!
    That's how it started, now I'm never going back to a bed...!

    Sounded like a good way to train, Godspeed on the full strength recovery so you can do your thru!

    Very cool.
    This would be a good thing to do in a kid's room. Hang it up at night and take it down to play during the day.

    You could hang the hammocks over the bed for an extra measure of comfort/safety.

    Post up of you do this and how it goes...!

    I recently started working towards a full hammock setup and my daughter is already showing a lot of interest.. afraid the wife will skin us both when she wants to change from a bed to a hammock full time!

    Would you say there have been any draw backs?
