Dan here, from SE WA. Got back into backpacking (tent) 6 years ago and stumbled across this hammocking thing last summer. After much lurking on this site, JustJeff's and others I decided the hammock might be the cure to my restless ground sleeping due to the aches in my old shoulders and hips after a long day on the trail. Got my 1st hammock and after 1 night I was totally sold. Never going to the ground again, not intentionally anyway.
Great forum and I really appreciate the tons of information and experience that is shared here - thanks!
