Ok, I'm new to this site. Came across some video's on Youtube on hammock camping and thought "hey, that might be great for my back vs a sleeping pad and bag on the ground. Anyway, I've researched some of the favorites many of you seem to like in particular the Warbonnet Blackbird. Seemss very nice but maybe a little more than I'd like to spend.
I saw the Grand trunk Skeeter Beeter and thought I'd throw it out to see if y'all had any reaction or opinions on it. Looked pretty decent, especialy for around $60 (give or take). If it is one of those "you get what you pay for" things, please let me know.
A little about me- I'm 6'3" about 225-230 lbs and 42 years old. My back certainly is not as great as it used to be.
The other hammocks that looks interesting are the bridge hammocks. I like the idea of the spreader bars giving a little more lateral room....and maybe not putting your frame in quite the banana shape (not sure if that is a factor or not.
Thanks for entertaining my newbie questions, Matt
