Hello to all the "hangers" here. I felt it was time to join in and see if I could finally soak up enough info that I could someday soon have as cool A selection of gear and DIY projects as soooo many of you crafty creative people have.
I've been HH owner for 7-10 years now. Have 2. Rain fly on one is just about toast so that is one reason for the visit. Another is the ever itchy bug to make my own has finally blossomed into the action mode...this after at least 6 yrs of ideas. You can imagine my feelings when I saw so many projects and ideas.
Things have changed for sure. Last time I checked most were still lashing the way it shows on the Hh stuff sack. Wow, so many options to think on. Fly options, tq & uq, lashing, pads, zippers and bug nets, water collection and double bottoms and I'm sure much more.
I'm glad to have found this site and hope to "Hang Out" with some new friends on many excursions. I can't believe I just missed the Hoosier Hang last week but things happen for a reason. I think the Hammock Gods did not want me embarrassed by my lack of updated technique and generic gear. Im kinda pumped to finnaly have some great info to read through. Thanks

Thanks but I think the information overload started in 04' when I had my first failed cold weather experiment. I loaded her down with bags and hotwater bottles to the stressing point. Still woke up with a frozen heel and buttocks. It was 13. I made it until 0400 and hypothermia was setting in. I called it a night and made it in to a nice toasty warm body and slept in my own bed in defeat. The quest began with that event. I'm really glad I found this!
Welcome to the club...tons of info here. There is always something new to look at or do.
