Tom and Landon : Hammock camping or this new high-end off shoot is basically for lite weight camping ! The weight savings is in the amount of insulation
you DONT have to have between you and the ground !

I am sometimes able to get away to do some camping with these groups! I have a friend whose whole hammock is a trice folded high thread content queen
sized bed sheet ! His annual Treks are usually for at least 2 weeks at a time ! To my knowledge, his hammock is at least 5 years old and he is 6' + and well
over 200#s

The moto of these camping groups is - ''Any day Above Ground is a good day !" 4 th' Craft Big AL

Hi Landon,

Yes I have seen these, and have slept in just about every "hanging tent" made, from the original 'dryad' to just about every portaledge made (black diamond, A5, etc.) I have slept in hammock tents as well over my kayak in swamps and 3000 feet up on big wall climbs. I am generally (never have been) a fan of sleeping on the ground. Do a little web browsing and you will find us "tree geeks" and "rock hoppers" sleeping in all manner of...hanging tent.

Good luck and share what you find...try some...you will love it!!

Actually Tom, I have traveled most of North America while sleeping in a hammock. I've yet to be skunked! Here's a photo from this spring, camping not far from where I grew up in the most desolate desert in the US. If you can find proper trees here, you can find them just about anywhere.
