I'm originally from Rochester, NY and I'm glad to see there are a number of people from my neck of the woods already on here.
I've been intrigued by the possibility of hammock camping for awhile and recently bought a Clark Ultra Light (which at 2 lbs 9 oz. ain't exactly ultra light). I wanted to get a Hennessy, but for logistical reasons it wasn't going to happen. I'm still adjusting to the Clark and suppose I'll be adjusting it to me as well.
I know I've got a lot to learn about hammock hanging and I'm reading Derek Hansen's book, which is very helpful. It's tough to try get into the swing of things alone overseas. I look forward to moving back to the states in the next year or two where I can meet up with some of you at group hangs and learn from what you all are doing.
