2303Re: Hammock Camping Shoulder squeeze
- Aug 4, 2003Wow! Thanx for the quick reply. Im 180# and 5'11. Im not particularly
wide shouldered but I do move alot in my sleep. I used to have a HH
but then gave it to my brother because of the same problem. Then
because I want this to work so much, I got a Byer from Campmor.
Admittedly the Byer is shorter, but the HH gave me the same problem.
Maybe I need to find a longer hammock? Do you make one?
