Publish date

National Hammock Day, celebrated on July 22, is a unique way to spend time in the outdoors, relaxing and enjoying the beautiful natural world around us. Join the celebration with your friends, family, and loved ones with a Grand Trunk hammock from Appalachian Outfitters.

About the Grand Trunk Brand

Grand Trunk started when two opposites—a former Marine and a preppy country club guy—happened to meet one another in Thailand. As two adventure enthusiasts, they immediately clicked, and the bond that formed between the two led to the creation of Grand Trunk. The company creates hammocks that are 20% larger than traditional designs, and they’re also built with purpose to suit the needs of an adventurer. As part of its mission to give back to the natural world, Grand Trunk established its lifetime commitment to the program Trees for US, improving and protecting our national forests. The company plants trees to protect our clean air, fresh water, and natural beauty so that explorers and adventurers can continue to appreciate nature for years to come. Grand Trunk hopes to encourage everyone to explore nature. Because so many of the employees and customers supporting Grand Trunk are also outdoorsy adventurers, they understand what people want in a hammock design. The hammocks are designed for specific activities or settings and include unique features and accessories to optimize your next adventure.
