Thanks for the place to read about hammocks and enabling me to become informed over the past few weeks and to make related informed purchases.
I started hiking about two years ago. And then last year I had a great snowshoe experience in the Maine Huts and Trails system. This year, it's time to sleep in the woods.
Sometimes I research to the point of inaction ....but I now have a Warbonnet Blackbird dbl 1.1 ordered and am anxiously awaiting its arrival.
After months of research and deliberation, I've decided to become a hammock dweller immediately as opposed to starting on the ground, thanks to this forum and its wealth of information.
I got hung up on a few issues (Leave No Trace, warmth, accessories, etc.) before settling on a hammock camping style. It's great to have a spot to read about such things and I cannot wait to start dangling from trees in remote places with a view !!
See you out there,
