#getoutandhammock It may be sacrilegious to hammock purists, but I find that hanging the hammock about 16" off the ground is ridiculously comfortable for sleeping. I set it so that about 60% of my body weight is distributed to the ground, the rest supported by the hammock. It also has other advantages to traditional hanging:
* sleeping pad doesn't wander
* avoid the banana back-ache.
* easy to get in and out
* easy to reach supplies (water bottle, headlamp, snacks, books)
* can use very small trees or rocks because the tension on the cords is much lower (only about 50#) - and so can use lighter cordage.
* trees can be much farther or closer together.
Though not shown in this picture, I typically also use a small ground tarp to protect from puncture, ground condensation and wrap over the hammock if risk of heavy dew or even rain.
Hey folks! We’ve recently noticed a lot of fake ENO accounts promising free hammocks for the first… https://t.co/MU6Ln4ywvc
