First off, hammocks are great. If you don't have one - you should get one. Nothing compares to rocking back and forth, weightlessly, under the shining sun. Throw in a river or waterfall, some peace & quiet, and a good book and you'll have what I like to call a "Hammock Afternoon". I opted for something a tad different than the conventional woven hammock. I purchased an ENO Double Nest. They are made from a breathable and cooling parachute material. The breeze blows through it on a warm day. If this sounds slightly familiar, I have blogged about my hammock before, here.
The setup is quick and easy. Find two trees. Wrap a Slap Strap (photographed below) around each. Connect each end of the hammock to an access points on each Slap Strap. Hop in. A convenient side pocket holds a drink, book, and camera. You don't even have to get up.
Here are some shots I took the other day. Let me know what you think.
