I am a little over one year into this hammock hanging thing myself.
Tim has provided you with a number of links in another post here which
are excellent. I had to prove this stuff to myself; so, the first
adventure was to make a Risk ZHammock. I stayed warm and comfortable.
Next, I purchased a Hennessy and then a Speer Hammock. I like the
Speer a bit more; but, that's just my two cents.
I began looking at hammocks as a way to save weight (YES it does!);
but, found that the "comfort factor" everyone raves about is
Get Mr. Speer's book and make one of your own and/or buy one, and
practice in the back yard. If your wife hates sleeping on the ground,
she will find that this is a VERY safe/secure/comfortable way to go!
Even the "modesty-issue" is covered - you have this tarp over you that
allows you to stand up to change clothes! You can sit down to change
shoes/sox and cook without crawling around in the mud.
And... Depending upon where you live, you could hook up with some of
these folks here to *SEE* what they are doing.
Plus, you will find that everyone here is more than genorous with
help, advice, etc.
