I was introduced to hammock camping last summer by bigbogg while attending summer camp with our scout troop. After testing out bigbogg's system, I was hooked.
Over the ensuing months, I researched, talked with a few local folks and then set out to try the DIY route. Created my hammock using ripstop nylon, got the hang of working with amsteel and making my whooping slings, etc. and was all set to test it out. After a few months of testing and a few epic fails, became discouraged with the DIY route. Being a rather broad individual, just couldn't find that sweet spot.
Right before the holidays, ****'s Sporting Goods had on display some ENO Doublenest, so still being a believer in hammock camping, I bit the bullet and invested in a Doublenest and a set of slapstraps. This past weekend was the first opportunity I had to test my new solution and...eureka! Best night sleep in a long time.
Next step is to invest in a bug-bag and then a light weight tarp. Any
