You know this seems pretty common, the unwarranted fears our friends
and family put into our heads about the hammock when they first see
it, that is.
I'm the only hammocker in my hiking club, so far and most people are
interested in it, but skeptical. They find all number of reasons why
it doesn't look as good as the tent. One of my fellow hikers
said, "what about bears?" and I replied, "well they are more
framiliar with tents having a yummy creamy center than a hammock, and
besides, I snore so I'm sure that will really scare the bugger off!"
