I first tried hanging a few years ago after watching Ray Mears Bushcraft and it got me into the great outdoors again and made me want to camp in the woods. I got myself a mesh hammock, thinking it would do the job but after sitting in it for half an hour I realised it was no use even for sitting in! My girlfriend got me a DD camping hammock for a present and that got me into hammocking.
Recently found Dutchware, Shugs videos (amazing!) and this forum.
