We all need a hand sometimes.

And that’s what we’re here for.

To provide you some guidance.

And if you want to cut straight to the chase jump to the bottom for the articles we’ve written on different tricks and tips for sleeping in a hammock.

Why Get Help

Learning new things is tough.

And learning to sleep and camp in a hammock comfortably is definitely a new skill that can be tricky to learn.

Heck the first hammock I bought was so small that I could not even take a nap comfortably in it.

Okay that’s a bit of an exagerration, but you get the point. It was way too small for me to sleep in overnight.

There’s also the little things to keep you warm and dry throughout the night.

I’ve learned those lessons the hard way.

Never underestimate mother nature. Always be prepared for the worst weather possible.

Or you’ll end up like me the night I was hiking in the Porcupine Mountains soaked from the rain and without sleep for almost an entire night.

Maybe even that one time I went backpacking to the lake with my buddies when it got down to 40 degrees farenheight without us being prepared.

So jump down to the bottom to get to the tips and tricks.

Learn From My Mistakes

As mentioned above I’ve made plenty of them when it comes to camping.

Almost all of them resulting in a lack of sleep, or even no sleep.

And as soon as I got home from these excusrsions I wrote about how I could have fixed them, and you don’t have to experience the same thing I have because of that.

Not only does it help me reflect on them but it also helps you learn from them.

Tricks of the Trade

There’s a few tricks I’ve also picked up fromt he years of hammock camping I’ve done.

Now they’re not as ground breaking as remembering to use drip lines, or the right size tarp.

But they are helpful.

My favorite one is probably putting something like a pillow or your backpack under your knees to prevent your knees from hyperextending during the night.

Now let’s get to the chase, because I know you’ve been wanting to get to it.

Below is everything I’ve promised you in this article.
