Sponsor: Grand Trunk National Hammock Day

   I received Parachute Nylon Hammock for free from Grand Trunk as coordinated by Deep Creek PR an Outdoor Industry Public Relations Company in consideration for review publication.

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Grand Trunk for National Hammock Day. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. All opinions are 100% my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC guidelines.

    The hammock is defined as" a swinging couch hung by cords at each end" [Websters]. Couches are very comfortable and a lot of fun. So why do more people not have hammocks? They bring together two very important things, people and the outdoors.

  Hammocks are a way for you to travel light and you are able to  hang the hammock wherever you are. There are many different types of hammocks from the material they are made with to the accessories added on to them, like hammocks with bug nets and roofs. They have certainly come a long way since just fisherman rope.
   Although I had always loved the idea of hammocks I had never owned one. I guess it just never occurred to me to get one. However, after Grand Trunk gave me the chance to try one out I can see why hammocks should be the must have summer furniture accessory.  They are a simple way of bringing fun and closeness back to a family. You can hang them up anywhere. In fact the Parachute Nylon Hammock is the world's best portable hammock. It is high-strength, mildew resistant parachute nylon with triple-stitched seams and nautical grade hanging carabiners ensure the hammock can hold up to 400 pounds. The rope and instructions are included, although I found it incredibly easy to put up and down in a matter of minutes. What was also nice was it was easy to fit right back into the bag every time.

    We really enjoy our Grand Trunk Hammock. It is very easy to put up and down. The material is very durable and strong, yet easy to clean and lightweight. It actually holds Nick, Xavier and I all at once, quite comfortably.  If you are thinking of adding some summer family bonding time I suggest you get a hammock. Nothing beats lazy evenings swaying back and forth with your loved ones and looking at the moon and stars.

   Grand Trunk Hammocks are great because they are so small you can easy toss one into the backseat of your car and take them everywhere you go. They are great for camping, the beach, sporting events or just romantic picnics.

   They say that it is popular to have an outdoor room for your home. I am certainly glad that my outdoor room has the hottest summer furniture accessory, the hammock!
