I just put in my order for my first hammock, the Hennessy Hammock. I am 34 years old in a month, and have been a ground dweller my whole life. I have been considering a hammock system for some time now, and after a recent trip on the SHT, I realized how much I wanted one when it was time to get up off the ground in the morning!!
I chose the Hennessy because the great, great reviews I have read and watched about it. I also live in the "northland" and the Hennessy offers a sewn bug net, and most others are zippered or Velcro. I also like the idea of being able to sleep flat at night, or even on my side at times, so this just seemed like the right choice!
Found the Hennessy Expedition A-Sym for 120.00 new on eBay. Got a 3 day trip coming up on the SHT at the beginning of June, and I can't wait to test the thing out!!
