Hammock vs. Tent Camping: Take Your Pick
I'm thinking about trying hammock camping for my next multi-day hike after weighing the pros and cons. Anyone have any experience with hammock camping? Hammock Camping: Pros: -More comfortable, better sleep -mobility: option to hike dawn-to-dusk without the risk of getting caught in a stretch of un-camp-able terrain -feet are above your head, allowing blood to drain from your legs, reduce swelling -easy and quick set-up (esp. if using snakeskins) -able to leave no trace -solitude: don't have to go to big campgrounds -protection against rain and ground water Cons: -learning curve (getting used to set-up/down, sleepi -comfort -cool -need a warmer sleeping bag
