How I discovered Hammocking
Years ago, when I was just out of high school, some friends and I went backpacking in the high sierra mountains. It was 1981...I had one of those lightweight string hammocks. As I recall, it was great when we would settle down after hours of walking. Fast forward to the fall of 2012, and I thought I would see if I could find another string hammock like I had way back when...I went to REI and found the ENO double nest...It was NOTHING like my old hammock! Soon, I looked on the internet to see what I could find out about hammock camping...Surely someone must have done it...Viola! I stumbled across this forum, and the rest is history! I now have a Wilderness Logics Light Owl, as well as my ENO "guest hammock"...I've made my own whoopie slings and toggles. I've purchased an underground 20 degree underquilt, and I take them wherever I hike. I'm looking forward to hitting the trail this Summer, and enjoying the high sierras, in comfort! How did you get into hammocking?
