Hammock camping

I searched and didn't find a thread on this. Took a trip to Colorado and this was my first time using the hammock. I loved it!

Who else out there uses a hammock?

Do you sleep on your back the whole night or can you roll over on your sides comfortably ? Just curious as this could be a good alternative to carrying a tent & all the other stuff. Thanks , WW

As attractive as the hammock option is, that's the issue I run into also. So many of the campgrounds I end up in don't really lend themselves to hammock use. Many campgrounds now won't let you attach anything to the trees.

That other thread is great for "tech support". But this is in "Pics, pics, pics" so let's see some.

From last year:


Wife & daughter. 3 trees, 2 hammocks, one tarp.


This year:




Cheers,

Definitely regional, if its going to get much lower than 60 degrees at night the cold air is gonna get ya. Probably why they are only popular in the tropics and not the mountain regions. Sleeping pad is not needed but if its cold ill use one and it helps with the cold. I can roll around a bit but find it most comfortable on my back
