    The main reason I ordered my hammock is for portageing my 10ft Hornbeck canoe (19lb) into small Adirondack ponds and loops.

    Another paddling hanger over here. I'd say my split at the moment is about 40% car camping to 60% canoe tripping, which is mostly done on crown land here in Ontario. Some of the spots I get into don't get much in the way of visitors and being able to setup just about anywhere I can beach the canoe is a great advantage over looking for tent pads.

    Heck, now that I've got my 5 year old son hanging in his very own HH and initiated to the backcountry, I'm hoping to do the canoe camping thing almost exclusively...

    I bought my hammock to keep my backside off the rocks in the BWCA from here on out. I have a feeling it will get its fair share of use on the car camping trips too.

    There is a Paddling sub-forum in the Donating members section which explores this topic and many others related specifically to paddling.

    For anyone wondering if the Donating Member Section is worth the $10 a year, just think how much value you would place on the freely available areas of HF. I donated because of the free areas and was amazed at how much more the DMS opened up.

    I never had a pay pal account so I signed up for one to pay the $10 donation specifically. Had trouble verifying my card, but will be donating asap

    Agreed, I have an Ally15 DR but also paddle a Kayak.
    I have the DD Travel so I can hang or bivvi depending on terrain.

    I usually do 3 or 4 winter canoe camping trips now totally hammocking it. I do river trips and a hammock and tarp dry bag easier than a tent and take less space. Rest of the time is using my whitewater canoes and base camping which is really just car camping near the river. Have 4 whitewater, 2 flat water canoes and 1 sea kayak, a Pygmy kayak Coho which hasn't gotten much use lately.

    Kayaking, Canoeing, Hammocking

    A cool river in TX heat and a good night sleep with air moving all around you. Only way to camp in TX during the summer. Other wise you are just miserable.

    I pack both hammock and tent in my kayak. Hammock whenever possible, but sometimes there are no suitable trees, or the wind and rain is just blowing too hard. You have to get pretty far back off the beach to cut the wind enough to make the hammock and tarp comfy. In that case, it's just easier to pitch a tent.

    I always have a hammock with me when there's trees around. There was one trip when I had to use a tent, there were no trees and nothing to hang from, I kayaked the entire texas coast in 2010, I had to use a tent!
