Recreational hammocking is taking the outdoor world by storm and it’s my responsibility to make sure that you aren’t going to be left behind. There are few feelings that are more enjoyable than swinging between a couple trees, enjoying the sunrise, sunset, or just a good afternoon nap.
I have recently partnered with a company called Madera Outdoors that specializes in the hammocking experience. Not only do they create quality products, they also team up with Trees for the Future and plant 2 trees for every hammock purchased! Trees for the Future takes the donation’s from Madera and invests them in the lives of African farmers who are building forest gardens to return agriculture to their homes. Check out this video to see it all in action.
As a brand ambassador, Madera Outdoors allows me to offer great discounts to all of you! I do make a small commission from each sale that is generated from the following links. That money goes back into trying new gear, traveling to new places, and fueling content that drives this blog and all my other content. I really appreciate all of the support from those of you who read and trust my suggestions. Thank you for helping me continue my dream of cultivating people’s own love for adventure!
A hammock is truly a good purchase for anyone, regardless of your “level of adventure”. A hammock can be just as good of an investment for the day hiker as it is to the backpacking adventurer. If you follow this link and use my discount code MADERA40, you’ll get 40% off your purchase!
You’ll want to pick up a hammock as well as the straps to help you hang it easily from the trees. These straps are my absolute favorite. With the daisy chain system built into the strap, customizing your hanging experience is simple.
Some of you might be thinking, “I love the idea Dan, but when will I use it?”
Where won’t you use it!? A good hammock can be used almost anywhere there are a few trees to hang it between! Try just kicking back for a short break to write, read, or enjoy a beautiful sunny day.
Or maybe just an afternoon nap:
Stick it in your backpack and take it for an overnight camping trip:
Or place it in a stack with your buddies:
This is one item you’ll want to bring everywhere. You never know when or where that perfect spot might show up.
Please let me know if you have any questions about hammocks and hammocking in general! I’ll elaborate more on hammock camping in a different post and detail how I set up my hammock for an overnight.
Until then… get a haircut and get a real job! 😉
