Hi, my name is Dennis and just like Bas I am from the Netherlands.
Well, I was born and raised there, but by now I'm sufficiently yankee-fied by having lived in the US for 15 years and having obtained my citizenship here.
I don't know what you guys put in my orange juice, but this forum is getting me hooked on hammocks, even though I have virtually no time to hike or camp, or had any exposure to hammocks before.
Hey, after I spend a boatload of money and time on hanging, do I get to blame it all on the members of this forum? That would be awesome.
My excuse for not having much time to go camping is a job, a wife with an even busier job and a Masters study on top of that, and 3 absolutely lovely children ages 3, 10 and 12.
My solution is to get a hammock setup anyway and go hang in the backyard, just to get acquainted with hammocking.
