    Perfect. I never tried a hammock for camping. Going to have to throw one in the jeep.

    They're pretty cheap, just get good tree straps as well. And you want a blanket under you if it's at all cold as the lightweight nylon ones don't stop the wind at all

    You guys are inspiring me to get a cot or hammock. Thanks.

    One my favorites was our neighbor at the last annual VJC camping trip (three years ago) who hung a cot from his roll cage in his jeep. Put a tarp over the jeep.

    We did tent camping out of the jeep. Bit of a logistics challenge getting enough gear in a two door for the wife but doable.

    I go a bit more minimalist without the wife.

    Re: Camping with a JKU - Trailer or Roof tent

    Then we rented a few mini trailers. They are actually kind of nice. Pull in and camp is set in minutes. But these ones aren't built for trails. Forest roads only. Looked into the off road custom ones but ouch $$$. Since then we found a deal on a tent trailer with running water and a heater we pull with the pickup. And now that we're that spoiled we're looking at the full travel trailer with the AC and bathroom. Does mean we'll have to drive the jeep and pickup/trailer both if we want to camp and do trails.

    Sorry guys, work has been beyond nuts and jeep still needs to be fixed. No promises but if the promised relief at work happens AND the forests re-open, MAYBE I'll be able to plan something for late summer, mid to late September(ish).
