212-Hammock Camping; from the trail

Show notes

If you want an expert opinion on hammock camping then this episode isn’t it! We’ve been playing with hammock gear for a couple of months and while we used them during the daytime for one reason or another we just couldn’t get out and spend a night hanging from a tree.

There are plenty of converts out there who have lots of experience in hammock camping but this episode has been deliberately recorded as a ‘first timers’ experience of what its like to spend a night in a hammock and for many people who try hammocks without a more experienced partner to show them the ropes this is how its done, the good and the bad.
