Do you have a double hammock for you and your partner? Have you ever tried bunk hammocking? Hammock over peaceful water? Also consider the tightness of your hammock and your back. There’s so many options! Choose to hammock with a beautiful view, or perhaps in a more secluded place.
Recharge yourself in a fun way! Bring your book, your drawing materials or perhaps your device to listen to some podcasts.
In addition to the fact that camping in a hammock is incredibly relaxing and comfortable, it is also safer than sleeping on the ground. In a hammock, you are assured that no insects will crawl into your sleeping bag (eco-insect repellent is always an option, however).
You also seem like you are floating and protected by everything from the outside world. You feel safe and cozy in your personal cocoon. Then in the morning, you can simply open up the hammock flaps and be welcomed by the sun. To really ensure a good night's sleep, you can put a mat in your hammock for extra insulation and hang a mosquito net over the hammock against falling insects from the trees! Hammock camping is also ideal for rainy days as it’s very little to set up!
