While many factors lead me to trying a hammock, I would have to say watching Shug’s videos on YouTube are the main reason that I gave it a go. In Shug's videos, setup looked easy and the hammock so comfortable that I just had to try it. So I went to EMS and bought an ENO SingleNest and straps.
Here is a picture of my first hang posted in the gallery:
I know there is a lot of opportunity for improvement and I am reading as fast as I can. Any helpful suggestions are appreciated with thanks in advance. I would also like to thank everyone for making this such a great place to read and learn.
Finally, a big Thank-You to Shug for his videos! For without him, I would still be on the ground.
