Share Your Hang Ups: Smith Mountain Lake, VA

2 min read

Thanks to David Miller from Glen Allen, VA for sharing this great story and photos with us:
“Dear Trek Light,
My name is David Miller and I bought your Double Hammock over 1yr ago. I wanted to let you know that I LOVE IT!!!!! I have attached a couple photo's of me enjoying a sunset on vacation at Smith Mountain Lake in Bedford County VA this year. I've used my hammock numerous times for camping and have had the best nights sleep ever, but never really got to enjoy it while camping.
On Tuesday July 17, 2012 I pulled out my Trek Light Hammock and set it up over looking Smith Mountain Lake. After I got it just right I walked back to the house, grabbed a beer, my Ipod, and a book and came back to my hammock. As I was watching the sunset I took some pictures and wanted to share them with other people that like hammock camping as much as I do and would truly understand that moment. Before I put myself to sleep relaxing, I decided to use my hammock as a chair. I just have one word. AWESOME!!! Even being a large guy, 265lbs, I was comfortable. Never got to the book or Ipod. Just enjoyed watching my son, daughter, nephews, and brother-in-law fishing on the dock and the sunset.
