How-dee from the Pacific NW
I'm excited to be here! Just got my first hammock from Trek Light because...
a) I always wanted a Hammock.
b) I have a nice hammock stand (sans hammock) I acquired a couple years back from a friend. It needed a hammock.
When my TL Hammock arrived, I started researching about how to sit in them and lay in them, etc. I stumbled onto this forum and "hammock camping." Liking the lower-impact to nature aspect, I am a new convert. I'll be getting a Warbonnet superfly w/doors, soon, with some DIM (do-it-myself) items added in (i.e., underquilt, removable bug netting, etc). I've also ordered my mini-atomic from Tinny (at Mini Bull Design) and a bush-buddy. My "geeky" self is super jazzed! I'm gonna have me some fun this winter!
Thanks for all the great information, everybuggy! See ya out there on the trail!
