After being "stranded" for about 6 year prior to lower back surgery, a full hip replacement and losing 82 lbs, I had to find something to do with all this new found energy. Hiking and camping were first on the list and since my wife's idea of "roughing it" is a 3 star and my boys (20 & 17) do not want to go out as often as I do, I started looking into solo camping. The only problem left was that all the gear I had was from my scouting days with the boys and was not suited for soloing. One day while searching through camping videos on You-tube I saw this guy solo-camping with a hammock and the light clicked on. I have my first solo w/HH hammock planned for this weekend at Colorado Bend State Park here in Texas. Wish me luck and any advice is welcomed.
