    Will it ever end???!!!!???

    After using hammocks for over two years now I am still infatuated with anything hammock. Tarps, ridgelines, materials, bling, suspension and anything else you could think of. I just received the two gathered end hammocks in PolyD and Argon from Dutch. Very nice hammocks Dutch.
    Now I want to check out the NylonD. Is there a cure for this sickness???? I am not really sure I want to cure it.
    Next up I plan on making my own stuff. Sewing machine is in the budget.

    No, just roll with it. I bought my first hammock 11 years ago and a couple of thousand dollars worth of gear later I am still addicted! Just ordered another set of cinch bugs from Dutch yesterday. I have somewhere around 15 hammocks now, and have sold 1 - that original Hennessy that I purchased in 2004. I guess that makes me a horder. I can't play golf any more, so it's my entertainment dollar spend these days.

    @Shug...just got a "Shug Shirt". That company has some good quality stuff. Great design. You are going to need a personal assistant with all your exposure.

    @mountainhanger.....I hear you on the money. Gets me into the outdoors though.

    @sweeper...I have 10 hammocks.....some where when I had no real knowledge and just bought off someone's suggestion. Most are bought off reading or watching reviews now. It's hard not to drop 32.00 on an 11 ft hammock from Dutch though.
    I am planning on getting a bridge hammock soon. I like the fact that I have so much gear, none of my friends/family have an excuse not to get out in the "piney woods - Shug qoute". When they experience that then they usually become outdoor converts.

    Guess it could be worse. I could just be gambling it away.

    Just wait until the DIY big hits you. I keep starting project after project. The fiancee was gone for spring break this week..I made a hammock for traveling, a cat cut tarp, and started a synthetic UQ. I really shouldn't be left alone.
