Hello Hammock Forum! I've been a member of the forum for about 3 weeks now but wanted to wait to say hello until i finally got my hammock... Well i just got it in the mail today, a skeeter beeter pro and a Kelty tarp from REI.
The mail man finally showed up after 2 weeks of waiting and sure enough despite the fact we have had a drought in KY for almost all summer it is apparently over today an it rained all day long. Despite that fact I decide to set it up anyway, but the trees i scoped out last week were too close together so i had to find another spot. Well the 2nd spot i tried to hang it was infested with wasps who were none too happy to see me and i ended up getting stung 4 times for my efforts... Eventually i found a third spot and got the hammock up and laid down for a relaxing 5 minutes in a downpour! Anyway I'm still super excited to go on my first real trip and wanted to say hello to everyone.
