I had no idea hammocks were so nostalgic! I love hearing about all these special and relaxing memories.

I didn't know you were supposed to hang them so high. Mine is on a metal stand and when someone lays in it, the bottom is only about 6 inches from the ground. We couldn't get it stretched any further and we are not heavy people. But, it works so oh, well.

Our new hammock stand has blown over twice. We have it near the pool on cool deck. We hate to drill holes in decking to anchor it. Suggestions?
