I found my way here from the Hoodlum Forum at their suggestion. It looks like they steered my right, to say the very least. I have always wondered about hammock camping, but had convinced myself that it was strictly a warm weather option. This site (as well as the good folks at Hoodlums) have really opened my eyes. I will be doing a lot of searching and reading here to get up to speed. At this point, I really don't have much to offer, as I have zero experience with the hammock. I have extensive camping experience, hunting, dutch oven and cast iron campfire cooking, and been in the outdoors most of my life. But this is opening up a whole new facet for me. Thank you all!!!
