    Hello from Cricket and husband near Atlanta, GA USA

    Hello,

    You have a wonderful forum and I'm grateful I found you.

    My husband and I are completely new to "hanging" and very excited about it as we are trying to figure out which hammock system to choose.
    We'd love to share one hammock, but are discovering this is next to impossible for sleeping. We tried the Eno Double Deluxe for a couple hours - it just doesn't work for two people to sleep.

    I've been researching a lot lately, and this forum has been very helpful. I'm attracted to the DD Jungle Hammock system - its versatility, the spreaders, but I guess we'll have to have two hammocks, not just one.

    We have backpacked, hiked, camped, backcountry primitive camped, and car-tented for many years - and since we've been married (recently) we've reignited our enthusiasm for minimal weight backcountry hiking and primitive camping. Together we've primitive-camped at White Sands National Monument, Hueco Tanks SP (Phenomenal! Met our first hammock-camper here, 4 private primitive sites, In the middle of nowhere, east of El Paso, Texas), Saguaro National Park (Douglas Springs), and Warren Bridge BLM in Wyoming en route to Yellowstone.

    We'd love to hear from others who prefer to spend the night close together, yet get a good night's sleep. Recommendations and such are welcome!

    Welcome from Michigan. My wife and I hang together more nights than not. Our front porch at home has become our place to hang and we do a lot of paddling and so enjoy a rest in the air after a day of paddling. This forum is a great wealth of information, and some great people.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Welcome from Fla! My wife(MightyMouse) and I hike, kayak, and hang together. We recently replaced our beds with hammocks!

    Thank you!
    Do you and your wife share a hammock? If so - which one?
    Thanks! (My husband is from OH, but lived in MI for many years, I'm from IN)

    Welcome to HF from Athens! We are having a group hang on the Chattooga River the weekend of Oct 25th. Take a look at this thread and come on out and join us. You can bring the tent and check out lots of different hammocks and tarps in one place.
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    We don't share a hammock. We always hang close enough to talk, and at home our hammocks are close together at the head end so we can easily touch/hold hands if we want. We both have Warbonnet BlackBirds for hiking, and home-made tablecloth hammocks at home. BTW, I'm from Ind. also.
