- Jan 31, 2009I am 6'2" and 250 and have slept in a Claytor more often than not since last March. I have been very comfortable. My back has improved dramatically and the whole flat thing for me was overplayed. Part of what I have enjoyed is having my feet, after a tough day on the water or at work, above my head.

There are folks here with a lot more knowledge than me, however; I can tell you that even with just my beginning set up, I am comfortable, sleep better than ever, and I will never go back to the ground. I even pass on my waterbed when it isn't -23 outside as I so enjoy my hammock. If it is above single digits, most nights I am hanging outside. Explore, read, search, read, talk to folks, read. I guess you get the reading thing huh!

Simply messing,' he went on dreamily: `messing -- about -- in -- boats; messing -- --
