“While many people focus on the location in which they hammock, the best part of hammocking in my experiences, comes not from where you are-but who you are with.”
The satisfaction of being in nature is unlike any other. Whether you hike many miles to your destination or you have the perfect spot in your back yard, being in a hammock surrounded by nature provides for a feeling of joy, excitement, and relaxation all in one! While many people focus on the location in which they hammock,the best part of hammocking in my experiences, comes not from where you are, but who you are with.
If it weren’t t for my friend Derek, I would not have been exposed to the world of hammocking. He received his hammock for Christmas our freshman year of college, and at times, I felt like I used his ENO more than he did. After a few months, I had to purchase my own. From that point on, it was always the two of us searching for a new spot to set up our hammocks. Our hammocking group then started to grow with more and more of our friends joining the search for that slice of relaxation, and whether hammocking at Duck Pond or on the Blue Ridge Parkway there was no shortage of good music, delicious snacks, and uncontrollable laughter.
