suggested by old4hats as something for us to do as we were recently retired. Many years ago I determined I was a pragmatic so when I started learning about hammocks from web sites and HF it just made sense. It was practical. I might suggest it is possible all hammock hangers could be pragmatic. Since I took the plunge I have not looked back. I would, and do, recommend to any and all get yourself a hammock. Well I just realized I am preaching to the choir here so I will shut up.
