NO trees, except the Joshua's, which are NOT strong enough to tie to.

Yeah, we can sleep in the horse trailer, but who wants to smell horse poop all night!
Set your hang off the roll bars between two Jeeps.

I have an ENO double nest w/atlas straps, net, and a large rain fly...I liked the Hennessey hammocks, but they won't accomodate my fat *** too well. The ENO fits me perfect and was a little cheaper than the Hennesseys.

Lol spent some time hammock camping this last summer. It was nice except I sucked at tying my knots or something and the hammock would slide down the trees and I'd wake up pretty much sleeping on the ground. Any advice on how to tie or if there's anything I should get to make it more secure

Way back in 1981, one of my first adventures in the Boy Scouts (I was 10) was a 50-mile backpacking trip. I used a hammock then. It was one of the old net style ones. VERY uncomfortable. Back in 2010, we took our Boy Scout troop (I'm currently an Assistant Scoutmaster) on their first 50 mile canoe trip on the Buffalo National River in Arkansas. I know that we'd be sleeping on gravel and sand bars. I don't care how big of a tarp that you put down on the sand and how careful you are, you'll wake up in the morning with sand in places that you didn't even know that you can get sand into.
I decided that I wasn't going to go through that. I broke down and bought an ENO (Eagles Nest Outfitters) "Single Nest" hammock. That was THE best week of camping that I have ever been on. If it's warm enough, I always sleep in my hammock anymore if I can find a place to set it up when the troop goes camping.

Dude, how to you have this mounted? Was it comfortable?

Since that post is 3 years old, I sure hope so. That's a lot of time to spend in an uncomfortable hammock.

I'm the only gay eskimo.

Sorry about the delay in reply, I don't spend anywhere near as much time on JF as I used to.

I was playing around looking at options for weather protection with less crap to bring along. With the rear seat removed, and the front seats forward, it worked ok. The hammock was a bit long, and my backside ended up hitting the center console. The solution was to wrap the hammock around the roll bar at both ends to shorten things up and raise the hammock to the point I no longer made contact with the center console. I used wire gate carabiners that were larger than those that came with the hammock which made this method possible.

Once you were in the hammock it was comfortable. But without weight in the hammock it was very close to the hard top and made getting in and out a pain. As a result, I only did this a few times. You can see fromt he pic that this was taken in my garage and was the first trial fit.

I'm amazed at how frequently I come across that old picture all over the internet. My son uses the ENO now, and I have a Warbonnet Blackbird. The Blackbird is longer and won't work inside the LJ, but is easy enough to lash between jeeps with a tarp for weather protection.

For all this time, I used a hammock only while camping. It is good to have a rest, but it is difficult to place people in hammocks nearby, so we decided to buy several folding chairs (I found a description of the chairs for the garden here https://greatyardmaster.com/best-out...olding-chairs/ , but I think they are perfect for camping). I hung a hammock in the garden and we rarely take it with us, because we often have problems with its installation. We try to have few trees near the camp, as we often cook on the fire, so we usually set the hammock far from the camp and this is inconvenient. I found in the photo a few new ideas how to hang a hammock. I think that once again I will try to take the hammock with me on the camping, suddenly this time it will be more convenient.

Just a heads up for you hammock people. Some National Parks have banned hammock use if you hang it from trees. When I booked my spot a week or so ago there was a big red banner on the web site to let people know. For years I have been reserving spots online and this was the first time I ever saw anything in regards to hammocks. If you just show up you won't see any warnings.

Why a hammock? It is more comfortable to sleep in a tent.
