This past week, we made it down to South Florida and finally hit the beach. It's been a long time coming, and we desperately needed some sun, sand, and surf. But, the most exciting part of the entire beach bum venture, was that we finally were able to hang our hammock from Hobo Hammocks.
We absolutely can't stop raving about these hammocks. What initially drew us to them was the social movement that the company is working to promote. For every hammock that is sold, a meal is provided for the homeless. The idea came about when Jake, the founder of the company, and a friend decided to live out of their hammocks while studying for the National Board Dental Exams. Although they chose to be voluntarily homeless, the circumstances allowed for Jake's wheels to start turning, and he decided to make a difference in the lives of those who were permanently homeless.
But besides having such a strong impact on their community, we also love Hobo Hammocks simply because their product rules. They have a ton of different colors to choose from, along with a double hammock style. The double hammock fit us both comfortably. Like two little snug pups, we swung back and forth in the breeze of the Atlantic. The hammock is a parachute-like material, with dual vibrant colors for each. We chose the Sunset color, which is a bright orange and red. It looked so lovely against the sand and sky. A definite stand-out among the earthy tones of Mother Nature.
Hobo Hammocks has a lifetime guarantee, if you needed ANOTHER reason to love this brand. When you buy a hammock, you're literally buying one for life. If ever the hammock breaks or malfunctions, all you need to do is send it back in and they'll ship you a replacement for free. So you also get security and longevity with every hammock.
At first, we were a bit apprehensive taking our hammock out of the bag, because it was so securely packed. But after it came water-falling out with ease, we realized hanging it would be a cinch. Even if you're struggling to find out just how the heck to hang the dang thing, the Hobo Hammocks website has some videos and instructions to make it a simple process. We literally hung ours in about 2-3 minutes. Each hammock comes with straps and carabiners, which are SUPER convenient and durable. Imagine, 2-3 minutes and you'll be swinging your little heart out.
When we were finished, we just rolled up the hammock like before, and fit it back in the already-attached pouch. Voila. That's usually my nightmare to be honest... fitting things back into their original form. Don't even get me started on newspapers. Grrrr.
We can't wait to take our hammock everywhere with us, however, you don't need to be travelling to enjoy. Everyone can benefit from swinging. Seriously. Just disconnecting for a few minutes and letting something else carry the weight for a while is both relaxing and rejuvenating.
