- Feb 1, 2009Okay, now I am really looking forward to using my HH for the first time
this spring. When I had orbital decompression surgery, followed by
gallbladder surgery, in the fall, I had to use my recliner to sleep in
for a few weeks and found it really comfortable. So if sleeping in my
hammock is anything like that, I am going to sleep like a baby!
I'm 5'8", 240 lb., and have a Safari Deluxe, which may be "too much
hammock" for my size, but when I unpacked it to add snake skins, it
seemed pretty workable. My 60+ year old camping buddies are excited
about the hammock, so maybe I'll be able to charge admission to try it
One of the best things about turning 60 last year was seeing the looks
on people's faces when I mention that I camp and kayak with a bunch of
other 60+ year old ladies. My philosophy is that I'm not 60, I'm
5x12, five times over, and still playing in the woods. With this
hammock, I may have extended the number of years I can continue to
enjoy exploring the outdoors.

i think your description of sleeping in a lazy-boy is very
accurate. i was talking to someone at work and he liked the idea
camping/hiking, but said he didn't think he could figure out a way
haul around his cpap machine that he has to use at night. i aske him
if he ever falls asleep and has problems in a recliner. he said no.
i suggested a hammock might be the solution. he looked at me with
glazed eyes and you could see he didn't understand that a hammock is
something other than the banana position.
