Begining last week we have ‘Sprung into Europe’ and ‘Kept Calm and Stayed Dry’. Hopefully, you’ll have spent the past few days and nights dreaming of your hiking and camping trips around Europe. Your plans have been drawn up and you have bought your hiking boots (don’t forget your ergonomic socks). You’ll have picked the ideal rain jacket that allows you to laugh in the face of Mother Nature and whatever she can throw at you. You’ve got your GPS set and everything is safely tucked away in your amazing dry bag ready for the off. What have you forgotten?
Somewhere to rest.
All of your hiking and outdoor activities are probably going to take a lot out of you. It’s quite a tiring life being an outdoors adventurer. What you need is somewhere quick, easy, comfortable, and, most importantly, portable to rest. Tents are great of course, but not always needed or practical. They can be bulky, a pain to transport on your back, tricky and slow to assemble and require quite a lot of space to erect. What you need is something different, something sturdy that will give you somewhere to rest that’s safe, comfortable and convenient.
Time to run H-amok.
An often overlooked, but pretty amazing, piece of kit is the humble hammock. They are ideal for campers, backpackers, hikers and basically anyone that wants a nice, comfy lie-down. Hammocks are almost instantly assembled, incredibly easy to carry and come in prices to suit all budgets. Modern hammocks are lightweight and teamed up with a sleeping bag, provide excellent shelter from the wild. Imagine camping out under the stars, gently rocking between two trees watching the universe go by. Sounds pretty great to me.
