May 26, 2008
It is always nice to spend some time in nature while your on a camping trip together with your friends or family. You can have many reasons for going to the great outdoors, maybe to get some rest or to enjoy nature. With camping you can have all these things whenever you want to. There is one item in on the check list before you go on your camping trip that should not be forgotten. Many people don't think about it, and in the western world it's not an item you see often in your home so that could be the reason you might forget it. The hammock should definitely be on your camping check list because once your are used to it a hammock is a nice peace of camping furniture to sleep in. There are a lot of hammock types to choose from so you should prepare yourself when go out to buy one, or as many as you need or your money can buy.

Where to find one

If you start your search for hammocks to be used during a camping trip you need to think about what you need and what you are willing to spend. First of all you should know, and you probably do, that a hammock needs two points that it can be tight to so it hangs of the ground. These points could be trees but also two poles you have to dig in to the ground every time you set up your camp. You should ask yourself if your camping trips are always in a place where there are a lot of trees or are you willing to carry at least two poles that you need to fix up every time you want to use your hammock. There are hammocks that have their own support build in. It consists of the hammock and a frame that acts as the two points between which the hammock hangs. One drawback of this last type of hammock is that takes some room to carry with you so it probably is not worth taking with you when you are going on a big hike.

Maybe you should just go for a simple hammock that should be tight between two trees. This is light and does not take to much room in your back pack if you go hiking. And even if it is not a hiking it nice to have a hammock with you. If the camping spot allows for it then you can use it. A hammock can be so much fun, if not for yourself then maybe for the children that came with you on the trip. They could sleep in it at night, while you keep an eye on them, and have a great adventure they can boast about too their friends at school.

A hammock is also great for those slumber moments there always are at these kind of trips. Lying in your hammock with a leg over the edge, just rocking yourself to sleep, that's the life style we all like. You can find hammocks by searching the internet or go to a sports or camping store.
