I got out my hammock today and used it for the first time and I am definatly going to use it for the next warm weather trip I go out on for sure or I might even just set it back up in the backyard and sleep in it one night. It is a Grand Trunk hammock and is made of parachute nylon.
I used a Hammock Bliss no see um for the first time last weekend at Raven Rock State Park, NC. Great experience. I will be leaving my tent at home if at all possible for now on.
Never seen the Hammock Bliss before so I went to check it out. That is pretty impressive, looks to be extrememly portable and hangs about anywhere. I like the netting idea they have to keep the mosquitos out, here in FL that is a BIG plus. Thanks for sharing
A few years ago my brother found an old hammock in one of our campers, he decided to hang it and see if it was any good. It took him a while to get it set up, but when he was done it all looked good. Being that I am the biggest out of 3 brothers, it was decided I should test it first, if it held me, it would be safe for everyone at camp. After an hour of testing, I woke up and decided it would do.
My brother didn't believe that I tested it right so he climbed in, after another hour of testing he woke up and decided that a hammock ain't so bad.
The one we used was an old mesh one, it looked like a casting net. I'm not sure who made it, but years ago you could probably pick one up for cheap at a Trader Horn.
