    Greetings from Charlotte

    Hi,

    I just want to officially introduce myself to the forum, I have posted a few findings as I am learning about hammocks. Currently I have two Eno Travelers that I have setup on my backyard with 2inch webbing.

    Finally I decided to give it a try to the whole enchilada so I ordered material to make my own hammock, bugnet and tarp.

    LASt weekend I was really close to getting a Hennessy hammock during the REI garage sale, unfortunatley my 3 years old had to make a trip to the bathroom and by the time we came out the hammocks were gone.

    I will try to post and document my experiences as I enjoy hanging between the trees

    Greetings from Charlotte

    Welcome! You might end up thanking your kid. DIY can be really rewarding. It's even better if you can DIFSIL ("Do It Future Son In Law"!). What materials did you order for your hammock and tarp?
    Oh yeah, if you haven't already, watch all of Shug's videos. Twice.

    Welcome and thank your kid for saving you the HH experience. Just across the state line in Fort Mill. Enjoy the forum, I know I have benefited from the wealth of information here!!
