  • Spirit of 76

    I’ve owned and slept on an off in a jumbo “Mayan” style cotton string hammock for nigh unto 25 years, mostly on warmer nights when I didn’t want to have to turn on the air conditioning. Just laying in front of the window fan would leave me nice and cool over and under. Usually slept on “the angle” so I could lay straight. Sometimes lengthwise with my feet on the edges so they could droop a bit instead of being pulled upward in the taut center. Occasionally widthwise. But I never really liked the relatively constrained feeling.

    Recently, I went to an outdoor event in the city where they had a few hammocks strung up on stands to create a “tropical island” atmosphere. Rope hammocks with spreader bars. Oh, no, I thought, these will be terrible, thanks to what I had read before buying the string hammock. Then I got onto one and promptly went to sleep for a couple of hours. When I woke up, I realized I had been brainwashed the other way. I’ve always been told that spreaders were bad and always avoided them like the plague. It wasn’t the case. I felt quite stable in the hammock, never feeling like I was going to fall out. Slept on the diagonal, just like I always did with “classic” hammocks. Felt nice and flat and wide open, with none of the claustrophobic feeling. Now I’m considering making a new hammock using polyester or nylon mesh used in outdoor gear and – horror of horrors – evil spreader bars, maybe made from fiberglass tent poles. The mesh should allow me to avoid waffle effect and have high breathability unlike the parachute nylon hammocks, while the spreaders will keep the hammock spread out rather than wrapping around me.

    It just makes me realize that as with most things in life, it’s best not to listen to the people at either extreme. As Bruce Lee used to say, “Absorb what is useful, discard what is not, add what is uniquely your own.” Avoid the people who say their way is the one true way.
