Hey guys, what's up?

I'm a twenty-one year old from Manchester, currently pursuing a degree in Outdoor Recreation at MTSU.
I'm big into backpacking and climbing, and occasionally have been known to do some paddling. I like to dabble in pretty much whatever extreme/outdoorsy whatever I can get into. Also, hoping to get a job as a whitewater raft guide this summer. : D

Well, on to hammocks, apparently a bigger deal than I first though. So I've been ground camping my whole life (since cub scouts,) but I've always thought it'd be cool to bring a hammock to sleep in. So, naturally, I went to Wal-mart, bought their ten-dollar excuse for a hammock, and tried to sleep in it. So I was turned off on hammocks for a while, until a year or so later I ran into a Hennessey and fell in love. Been hangin' myself ever since, but I'm looking to improve my experience. I'm still using a ground mat/sleeping bag combo, and I feel like there's probably a better option. But that's all for now, glad to be on here!
