      personally i could care less if anybody sees me ugly and very fat but!

      i will turn my back or step behind a tree, wait for somebody to pass etc but when i need to change i will do it.. here in Hugnary i often drop my swim suit at a beach and put on my clothes those who are offended should just not look....

      also, I've only used my about 3 times now.  I found that it's not so
      bad to change the upper half and the socks/shoes part in the hammock
      but the pants/shorts area is pretty impossible.  So far I've only
      used my hammock in dispersed camping situations so the group I was
      hiking with were the only other people around (well as far as I
      knew).  I just grabbed my clothes and walked off into the woods to
      change or stood behind a tree.  No biggy.  IF I'm in a campground,
      yuck!, I will just use my vehicle, or the restrooms or stand behind
      my tarp.  It's not really as troublesome as it seems.

      Good luck and I think you will enjoy hammocking.
