Description

As hikers grow in their knowledge and ability they will often transition to overnight trips and the default setting for nearly all of us is tent camping.  Tents just seem to be the easy option and for many of us it harks back to family trips or play as children; it's just something that we understand and seems easy.  While tents are the most common camping option for hikers another alternative that is slowly gaining ground is hammock camping. Hammocks provide a degree of versatility over and above tents and while they won't suit all circumstances it may be a viable option for your outdoor adventures. In this podcast episode we look at what's involved in hammock camping including the pros and cons, the gear basics, and basic hammock practice to help you decide if this is an option for you.
