    Welcome to HF, REV. There is nothing wrong with an ENO - if it works for you, enjoy it. But, yes, there are a lot of interesting things going on here. Feel free to jump right, ask questions and seek advice. Be sure to check out the video section - lots of good advice there, too.

    thankfully (since i belong to several forums) i tend to lurk and look a good bit first, then talk. i am interested to know a few terms and find links (searching gives you millions of hits) to some info:

    whoopie sling. sounds dirty... and now as soon as i write that i forget the others...

    anywho, i will be using my (soon to be multiple) hammock for bs'ing around charleston and on the beaches, and some motorcycle camping. my bike is my only vehicle, and i have a tendency to wander pretty far from home and tents just suck all around. fell in love with a hammock the first time i tried it out half moon.

    Welcome to the forum, Rev.
    The present moment is eternal. I would rather be Here, Now.

    Welcome to the forums, Rev! Hammocks are *perfect* for bike-camping! We have several members here who also ride and hang a lot, and htere are some great videos in the vids section of it! enjoy this place, ask a million questions, read, read, watch, watch, and hang, hang!
