6232Re: [Hammock Camping] I've done it now.
- Jul 1, 2004I'm a backcountry off-trail hiker and long distance
pond hopping Hornbeck canoe portager. Some of the
places I go are pretty rough when it comes to finding
a place to sleep. In the past I've many times
frustratingly spent over an hour searching for any
tiny reasonably flat spot to place my solo tent that
was not either wet or covered with deadfall or full of
upturned roots. Now that I'm hammocked instead of
hummocked, all I need look for is 2 trees, what is
beneath is of little concern. A pretty easy task here
in the northeast.
Hammocking has radically changed my perspective in
campsite selection and increased my late afternoon
exploration time considerably. Enough so that I can
make it to that next pond late in the day without
worry about finding a place to sleep.
