Ford Nixon Travels the World with a Hammock in Hand
How long have you been hammocking?
How did you get started with hammocking?
I grew up with a hammock hanging behind my house. My parents knew that they could always find me there because it was my favorite spot to be after school when I was younger. Once I grew older, I wanted a more compact hammock that I could take along with me on various trips and my love for hammocking grew even more after I purchased an ENO hammock. I take it everywhere I go.
You have so many incredible hammock adventures, do you have a favorite place?
It’s hard to narrow it down to one spot. I’ve hammocked everywhere from the beaches of Haiti to the mountains of Georgia. I might have to say that my all time favorite spot is the riverbank near my house. It’s easily accessible and presents one with an amazing view.
One a scale of 1-10 how much do you freakin’ LOVE hammocks?
10 duh! 😜
What do you think hammocks will look like in 20 years? 100 years?
I think they will look very technical and have a super lightweight design. They will have built in LED lights. More and more people will continue to be introduced to them and they will become the ultimate source of rest and relaxation.
If you could hang up your hammock anywhere in the world where would it be?
I would have to say somewhere in the Maldives. I’ve always wanted to visit there and feel that it would be the ultimate spot to hang a hammock.
What are your go to hammock accessories?
Lights, camp pillow, a good book, and coffee.
Do you represent a particular hammock brand or are you constantly searching for innovative products?
I have had an ENO for almost 8 years. It’s indestructible. I have taken it with me everywhere I go for the last several years. Whether it be vacation or an adventure, it always comes in handy.
Is there anything else you would like to share with us?
Hammocking is happiness. 😀
