Just wanted to say hello to everyone and introduce myself a bit. I am a long time backpacker, writer and photographer.
I guess I am a slow learner, but I have just embraces hammocks. Being a tarper, it was the natural way to go. But for me it had more to do with comfort and GERD, yes, that wonderful affliction when you lay flat, your stomach acid decides to take a ride up and out. It is painful, gross and a real problem for me, that is until the idea of a hammock came to mind.
Sleeping on the ground has now become a thing of the past.
Thanks and hello to everyone.
