I overheard some scoutmasters talking about a really cool hammock so I went online and found HH and Clarke. I could afford HH so I bought one for me and one for my son with the winter special (I only use my HH in the Spring and Fall as it is too hot in the summer and harder to rig DIY UQ to in the winter; plus no bugs in winter so no need for bugnet.).
Since then, I have enjoyed the GTUL and have made my own hammocks and tarps. I just got my own 'thread injector' and I look forward to making all kinds of gear. With my weak back, I need the lightest and best sleeping arrangement. Hammocks are the best sleep with the least weight without spending more hundreds than my wife is willing to give me(1). My current setup costs $15 for GTUL, $10 for my poncho liner UQ and $10 for my curtain panel from Walmart (used as a weather shield under my UQ, $50 for my sleeping bag, and $15 for straps, whoopie slings, shock cord.=$100 (Cheaper than one night in a hotel)
