Mmmm, we're just about to extend, I think I might *accidentally* overorder on the tyvek

Welcome from a fellow noob, gospidey- I'm an old broiler of 46 and although I don't usually creak much, there are a plethora of unpleasantnesses which I find the hammock alieviates- if I go too long without a night in it, I gets purdy grumpy!! I agree with the guys as its a huuuuge weight difference and for the sake of buying ed speers great 'hammock camping' book and a few yards of ripstop, you can get a set up down to the weight with minimal sewing and they are totaly amazingly comfy
