I like this a lot. Thanks for the post and the endorsement. I have a new bike that I want to use for some light touring and have been considering a Hennessy Hammock. I haven't done too much research yet, and am still considering whether I would be comfortable and the practicality of a hammock.

I know you are in the PNW and so your endorsement helps me, I will look into this before I do my test weekend tour.

Thanks mate,

I have about 70L of internal storage so a hammock seems a good fit.


I use to ride a portion of the C&O canal years ago. It was a great afternoon of cycling.

Trick with the hammocks is to carry 50' of mountain climbing rope and some caribeeners. You can overcome any situation.

The Gatorade bottle restroom hack is one I have employed. Just be sure to warn travel partners who might unsuspectingly attempt to ingest your "yellow storm" assuming it is an electrolyte beverage.


My dh and I just hammock camped on the Virginia Creeper trail with our bikes this past weekend. Learned that there is a limit to how much stuff one should pack for an overnight trip that involves biking up a mountain! Seeing the giant bear in the area earlier that day made me a bit nervous but it turned out to be a wonderful way to camp! We used the handlebars of our bikes to help spread out the large tarp to create a "porch". I wonder if you can hammock camp on the C & O successfully?



Seeing as I spent a week hammock camping on the C & O, the answer to your question is a resounding yes.
