    If God intended for me to sleep in a hammock, there would be perfectly spaced trees everywhere I camp. (there is ground)
    Oh, and no wind & rain.
    A friend that loves his hammock convinced me to try one.
    I've had it 5 years and have yet to use it.
    For most weather conditions a six year old 15 degree Big Agnes system bag and a 2 man tent work for me.
    Recently purchased a second Big Agnes "system" sleeping bag that's rated to 0 degrees.
    As a fair weather camper I avoid most bad weather but have been caught in storms, especially when desert camping in the winter.
    I have upgraded my gear accordingly and use a North Face VE-25 for winter & high elevation camping.
    I'll keep the hammock in case I start rock climbing again.

    I have a Texas friend who likes to hammock camp.
    He mentioned their's a forum called hammock forum. https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/

    Here's a few pictures of his hammocks I copied from one of his ride reports.

    No Trees...No Problem!

    I found this company (https://www.tensaoutdoor.com) in the forum suggested by Lee. A system for supporting a camping hammock anywhere (maybe).
