Today, in Iowa, is not a good day to hammock outside. It has been snowing and blowing for a few days now! I just wanted to introduce myself and say that I'm very excited to be part of such a wonderful and widespread group of hammockers. Thanks for having me. I own one hammock: it's a one-of-a-kind original from Mexico that I picked up back in 1995! I've never really used it so I'll be looking for tips on setting it up.. this summer of course! Happy hammocking and happy holidays to all!
