    I personally cannot second this enough. It will take a few attempts to get the hang right and things where you want them let alone, getting used to sleeping in the hammock. I found it took me several days before I was fully comfortable however, now, I sleep like a baby. YMMV

    Enjoy the journey!

    The first time I ever used a hammock was my first night on my AT thru-hike attempt last year.

    Never put a hammock or a tarp up before. In the pouring rain.

    It was not ideal! Ah memories.
