    Hi from Massachusetts

    I'm new to hammocks but been tent camping for 40+ years. I started off with an impulse buy of a Walmart hammock with bugnet for $30 and spent the most comfortable nights outside in it I've ever had. Now I'm eagerly awaiting delivery of a new Dutchware Chameleon Wide. My primitive camping is done from my kayak. I love paddling out to the Boston Harbor Islands and hanging there. I plan to take a trip on the Connecticut River Paddlers Trail this summer, too.

    I'm here to learn and eventually pass it on to others like me.

    Welcome to the forums! There's lots of good (and sometimes overwhelming) information here.
    Find your inner hammock.

    I just added my information to the signup sheet. I hope to meet you on Saturday for some tips on my new system, Dutchware Chameleon Wide with symmetrical bug net, Beetle Buckle straps, a OneTergis UQ and a couple of tarps. I'm not sure how much better it could be, I fell asleep in it instantly in the back yard yesterday afternoon.

    Glad you can join us. Bring yer appetite. It's a gr8 bunch of people and you'll learn loads to get you off to a good start... just stay away from the guys called Chaaaz, Gil and Ted. They are well known fleeing felons and bad influences.

    Thanks for the warning. I wish I could spend the night but between business trips and camping my poor wife hasn't seen me much lately. See you on Saturday.
