TROOP 636 ELIZABETH COLORADO
I started hanging when I was in scouts over 30 years ago in Alexandria Va. My first hang was in a net style hammock and no tarp. I was not always the sharpest tool in the shed and one time I hung during our annual caving campout which took place in February. I ended up with about 2 inches of snow on my face in the morning.
Now sleeping in a gathered end DIY hammock. Loving it and nice to wake up in the morning dry and warm without back pain or other pains from trying not to hit the hard ground.
