I have been on your site for about two days now almost 24/2. It is amazing the information out there. "Shug you are by far the funniest". I feel like you are already my bff. We are planning a AT trip in June, somewhere in VA, and started out thinking tent camping but the more we read about swingers or hangers we are 100% that is the way to go. Problem is hyber space is loaded with so much information about hammock types that I feel like I have been sent on a jounrey(via youtube) through WW's chocolate factory. So far lessons I have learned is hangers are great people. There are no bad hammocks from top-of-line to diy. It is the toppings that get complicated. Now with that being said, it would appear that Clark's North American has everything in one neat package. When you look at the price you have to have smelling sauce or being from the south it gave this little lady a case of the vapors. But when you start less and build you seem to always come up to about the same expense. But your simple hammock now looks like a Christmas tree with lots of things hanging with lots of strings everywhere. I mean you have to take a college 101 course to rig the thing. Somebody please help me because my brain is about to blow.
