Well done. I too am turning 30 soon and have almost 2 years into our hobby. Nothing satisfies me more than to think of how much this little piece of manmade cloth has changed my perspective on a lot of things in life.
Hammocks are a symbol to all cultures around the world of relaxation. I think if everyone around the world had some dealings with our great hobby there would be less instances of depression and other mental issues. They sooth the soul in ways most other things can't come close to including pills.
We, as the hammock hangers we are, have the best medicine for our health than others do.
I almost had the opportunity to take a vacation to New Zealand this month, but due to my sons age, the wife and I decided it would be best to wait until he were old enough to remember. I will be reading your trip report on that when I get home from work. Thanks for sharing and checking in with us. Take care.
BTW I'm a born and raised Bama boy too.
