    Who's switched over to a hammock for sleeping? What brand you like. Better than ground sleeping? Been spending a lot of time on a hammock forum. Got me wanting to give it a go!

    In the past I've seen pics of hard core campers in tents camping on mountain ranges, lots of gear can be bought to compensate for extreme weather conditions, can that be done with a hammock?

    Edit: I guess you could set up a hammock inside of a tent?

    Yeah, that's the ticket. But instead of a tent why not just build a nice insulated log cabin and set the hammock up inside by the huge stone fireplace. Okay, I know, there's a wise arse on every forum and I accept the nomination.............:p Nothing like taking a wee afternoon nap in a nice comfy hammock by a stream with a gentle warm breeze blowing......:) But for now me thinks I'll just stick with me olde RV and let the hammock thing be...........:cool:

    Welcome to the forum Grayson Everett. Good to have you aboard, hammock and all....:D

    Hammock camping simply means you're swapping out your typical tent in favor of a hammock and a few helpful accessories where you can comfortably sleep outdoors overnight. Many backpackers and bikebackers enjoy camping with hammocks because they are so lightweight and take up little space in a pack
