Hello to the forum! So here's my quick story... Got my new Campmor catalog recently, and was thumbing through as always, looking for new gear, and came across the hammocks page. Started to think back to my days as a kid rocking in the old rope hammock, and thought about our upcoming trip to Minnesota and decided, you know, I need a hammock!
SO I grabbed the REI giftcard that I had been saving for just the occasion, and after some research and great reviews I went and picked up an ENO Doublenest. I love it! Wow, amazing, just like everyone writes. Loved it so much, and after I discovered they are a NC based company, a few days later I called them direct and ordered the rest of the compnoents of their OneLink system. So now I have the Bug Guard, Profly, and Slapstrap Pros, and Easton stakes. Can't wait to get this system out in the woods!
Every night since I have been out in the backyard, I have a pergola with a ceiling fan, and I set up diagonal, post to post, and swing away. My wife has joined me the last two nights and been asleep in 10 minutes!
In the process of research i discovered this site as well, and got registered last night. Can't wait to read further in, seems to be a ton of great info and great folks!
One question I do have, why is it that the ENO hammocks and systems don't seem to get much love in this forum? All the talk seems to lean towards hennessy and spear, etc. So what gives? As so far I am very impressed, although i know I have a lot to learn about other options!
Thanks guys and looking forward to all that is to come...
