Okay I don't REALLY say y'all.....much... but definitely wanted to say a warm hello to all you avid hammock folks!

A friend of mine heard that I was planning a kayak/camping trip down the Illinois river in mid March and suggested I hammock camp rather than the traditional tent camping.

Like any curious indiviudal I said "hammock what??" Fast forward to him setting up his blackbird at Woodward Park and WHOA BOY how awesome is THAT!?!

I'm hooked and I haven't even gone yet! The excitement grows as I continue making my plans and I will be using these forums to beseech the wisdom of you fine members.

That being said, be ready to see a lot of me!
