I have been stalking this site for the past several months learning a great deal. I decided it was just time to join and become a member. I am new to hammocking, but have been backpacking and camping for years. I have found the transition quite enjoyable and look forward to learning more and getting to know some local hangers.
I really appreciate all the help and community that is provided on this forum and hope to be able to add to it in the near future.
After reading the sticky about members wanting to know why we decided to start hammocking. I was in Guatemala about 14 years ago and sleeping in a hammock is quite popular there. I spent several nights in a hammock and loved it so much that I purchased a cheap on made of twine while I was there. I brought it back with me and slept out in the yard from time to time. Recently I was given a gift card to REI, and being as I already have all the equipment I need for backpacking and camping I decided to try something new. I bought an ENO hamoock and started doing a bit of research on the subject. I was disappointed by the offerings that ENO had in its product line and decided to get a WBBB recently.
