My name is Norman and I live in Madison, MS. I have been camping for decades and was introduced to hammocks by a member of our group on our recent trip to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. I was hooked the first time I sank into, and turned into a puddle in his ENO hammock. As soon as we got back home, I started researching the internet to find out how I could make one for myself.
I just finished sewing one with a double layer pocket of ripstop nylon for insulation in colder weather and for mosquito protection in warmer weather. I added a mosquito netting and snakeskins and was ready to go. I set it up in the backyard and last night was the first time that I have ever slept in one. It was amazingly comfortable and with a few tweeks could become my preferred method of camping.
