Newbie help - Florida hammock
Newbie to the forum. I've been hammock camping with a friend a few times and love it. I really want to get a Brazilian or other outdoor hammock with a stand to put by my pool. Any recommendations? Potentially, I'd also like to use the stand/hammock indoors on occasion. I'm in Florida, so the weather is perfect for hanging. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I used a Mayan hammock outside in WA State in the summers.
It was perfect!!
Just make sure it is away from rodents when stored.
In some mysterious way woods have never
seemed to me to be static things.
In physical terms, I move through them;
yet in metaphysical ones,
they seem to move through me. -

Welcome to the forums from South Florida!
Check the "outings & trip planning" forum for hiking trips here in Florida and especially the big group hang in January in Ocala Nat. forest. (Over 75 attended last year).
No personal experience with these folks, but others on the forum have reported being well pleased with these Brasilian hammocks ...

Welcome aboard from Lakeland. Looking forward to meeting at one of our hangs. Probably 6 or so plus the big one in January.
