The only reason people use tents is that they want privacy and protection from the weather. But, they have to lug it around with them like a snail carrying its shell. That can be a real drag if you are a hiker and you have to schlep the whole way carrying a tent with on their back.
By the time, you are ready to stop for the night you are too tired to set up the tent in the first place. However, not anymore, Hennessy Hammock Expedition Series can do the same, cheaper and easier to carry.

This is one of the highpoints of my mind to write about a hammock, which has such versatility and usefulness. It allows people to travel almost anywhere in the world and take their shelter with them.
Preppers build fixed location shelters and storage caches to prepare for the "Big One." This limits them to a particular area. However, with a hammock like this one you can travel to where things are better and not have to fight over a particular piece of land. You can always go elsewhere instead.
If you recall the Native Americans owned no land and felt that they were part of it all. They traversed it for thousands of years. Until the white man forced them into small plots of land and as a culture, they virtually vanished. Now, today you can gain the freedom to travel the land as they once did in the old days and that gives you true freedom.
