I always thought camp hammocks makes were cool, but assumed that they were sort of a novelty. Portable hammocks, or so I figured, would just like folding camp chairs – something to make you a little bit more comfortable while you are hanging around your campsite, but far from a necessity. I am a pretty serious camper, and when I go out into the woods I don’t take much in the way of comfort items. All I tale when I camp is my tent, my bag, some food, and some clothing. That is about it. Sometimes I’ll take a good book to read or a harmonica along to play as we sit by the campfire, but never anything particularly large and bulky. I figure that camping hammocks, no matter how comfortable, were not for me.
