I just realized that I've never done an "intro" on this forum, although I've been posting a little bit here and there.
In years past, I was an avid hiker and camper, but haven't been active for a while (work, family, and life all seemed to get in the way!)... so now that I'm getting a bit more time, it's time to hit the woods!
Hammocks caught my attention when looking for ways to lighten my load, be COMFORTABLE (another reason I camped less and less -- the older I get, the more those little injuries from when I was 20 come back to haunt me!), and fit nicely in the saddle bags of the bike.
Thanks already for the great info I've gathered. This looks like a great place to learn, share, and just "hang out".
Looking forward to meet folks, and know people better!
