I've been lurking around the site for quite a while now. But I figure it's about time I introduce myself. I'm Jeff, I hail from Huntsville Alabama. I've been hammock hanging for around 6 years now.

My first hammock was Hennessy Hammock Exped Asym. I still use it to this day. Once I got up off the ground I knew I could never go back except in certain scenarios.

I'm an active backpacker, Kayaker, and general outdoorsman with a focus on minimalism. I've been working on lightening my load for years, and the process never seems to end.

I was brought here by the desire to make my own gear, and make gear for friends. While searching for plans and ideas, I stumbled upon Hammockforums. Great site, and I'm happy to be here. I can already tell this place is going to be a huge help during my gear making expeditions. I've already made a 10x10 tyvek tarp, and a 10' gathered end hammock. They work great, but I still prefer my Hennessy.

So hello, and happy to be here, looking forward to many good conversations.
