Have to agree, in part, with App103.
I thought Surfulater was excellent for my needs, way back. For various reasons, stopped using it but last 6 months, have felt like using it again. Seems it would be pointless to try tho, sadly.

Re Clibu: "Clibu is completely free at this time. At some point we’ll charge - if you can afford a cup of coffee a month you’ll be able to afford to use Clibu."
Well, I can't.

That sounds fine, but how about all the other softwares with subscriptions also costing a coffee (or more) each? Since I retired from the work force, with its attendant severe drop in disposable income, I can't afford several coffees/month. I'm stretched with the photoshop cc subscription, and won't drop those coffees for a Clibu coffee, attractive as Clibu sounds.

Wish I could afford the Kindle Unlimited and various music subscriptions too, all who present variations on the "only a cup of coffee" theme.

Perhaps there's one other motivation.
As someone with a slight malicious streak and who is soon to come into possession of a brand new baby,
I'm looking forward to repaying all those friends who
- talked incessantly about their baby
-  forced me to to look at photos without end of the aforementioned
- forced me to look at holiday happy snaps, also without end, which on the bright side, at least made me contemplate orders of infinity
- made me listen to their guitar playing.
The number of baby photos I'll be posting will be wondrous to behold. Contemplation of the boredom I'm intending to inflict gives me a warm inner glow.
"Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord" ... he ain't seen nothing yet.

Apart from the cc hurdle, in this case (myUS), as with most (maybe all) of these sort of companies, suppliers can discriminate between residential and commercial addresses.
myUS in fact has a list on their website of companies known not to allow trans-shipping.
In the hammock case, the reasons for only selling to limited markets were fraud and product support.
I'm not going to actively pursue this anymore - put it on my KIV list.

Thanks Swift_Man, I'll check that one out.

Old debate.
From my POV:
1. Quicker than using my bivvie sized tent - 2 lashings and finished.
2. No bending
3. Hands stay clean - no grovelling in the dirt
4. Takes up much less space than swag
5. No rolling up hassle
6. MORE places to camp
 - avoid the "nice spot but ground's too rocky/uneven/sloped" problem
 - in NPs, camp in spots not popular because of slope - eg if forced to camp in "shared", designated camp grounds
7. No worries about floor staying dry
1. Can't spread gear around it like in a tent
2. Too much adrenalin if there's much lightning

BTW, I don't need trees. Car can be one tree, I've a pole than can act as 2nd tree. And having said all that, I've 3 other tents I'll never chuck out!
