I'm tired sleeping on the ground. And getting a good night's sleep is the only thing standing between my aging body and continuing to pursue my outdoor pleasures. So, I've been experimenting. Thicker sleeping pads, different tents, etc. Even looked at the ultra light cots. Tried a couple of gathered end hammocks. Very nice. Love the whole concept. But felt a little pinched and little claustrophobic, especially on my side with a face full of nylon. But I did not want to give up on the hammock idea - too tempting. Just took delivery of a Warbonnet Ridge Runner. Quality and construction are first rate. I'm a long way from a hammock expert but the design looks spot on. I've been practicing putting it up and taking it down, with short periods of very comfortable laying, but I think this is going to be a game-changer for me.
