I've been camping since I was a kid in everything from campers to tents to bivy sacs. I did a fair amount of backpacking. Hanging didn't come to be until I started flying as a loadmaster for the Air Force. I wanted a better way to sleep on the flights than a pad and a sleeping bag on the cargo compartment floor.
I used ENOs and lots of blankets for the longest time without ever making the connection between hammock and camping...until I needed to buy a new one and discovered that they made better ones for camping!
After that, I looked into getting one and wound up with my WBBB that I'm in now. Only had 1 actual trip with it thus far....although it is hanging in my bedroom too.
