"What made you a "hanger"?"
Not sure I am yet. Just got my hammock, and have yet to sleep in it.
But I wanted to try it due to advanced age, sore old bones, back full of steel, and so on. I love to camp out, but just can't do sleeping on the ground anymore. Got to try something, find a way to keep camping out.
You can be wet and miserable, or you can choose to just be wet.
