Welcome from Lawrenceville, GA! Oh man, you are going to love sleeping in your hammock. I've been sleeping above ground over two years now and love it. I've slept in all kinds of weather and have never been more comfortable and have always been warm in cold weather and dry in wet. Believe me, getting off the ground, out of the tent and hanging between the trees will be the most enjoyable you'll spend. It's addictive - the more you hang, the more you want too and you can't wait for your next trip. Have fun and welcome.
