I have been backpacking for over 20 years.  I have slept in tents, in shelters, and sometimes just on the ground.   I have had some good nights, and I have had a lot of really bad nights.  Usually the bad nights meant that the shelter floor was too hard, or I had some roots and stones beneath my tent that I could feel all night. These bad nights made the next day a little harder.  But, I had always assumed that that’s just part of backpacking.

In 2013, I was looking to buy a new tent.  A friend recommended that I take a look into hammock camping.  I was intrigued at first.  My intrigue then became skepticism as I wondered if it was as good as everyone said.  In spite of that skepticism, however, I decided to give it a try.

I haven’t looked back since.

Hammock camping has really changed the way I backpack and spend my time outdoors.  This page is designed to share some of my hammock-related thoughts and some of my backpacking tips and gear reviews.  Please feel free to leave comments!
