    Hello from Australia

    Howdy all! I'm new to hanging. actually I haven't even received my hammock yet(Grand Trunk Double).

    I'll be using my hammock for kayaking trips, and hiking. Hopefully my hanging time will be as comfortable as everyone says, I just need to get an UQ within my budget, hopefully second hand.

    Saving up for a US road trip that will include some of my favorite national parks in the world!

    Cheers for all the information posted on here, I've learned so much in the few weeks that I've been reading these forums

    Welcome from Florida!
    When you get to the US, check the "outings" section and try to attend some group hangs!

    Cheers for the welcome!

    Australian people, where do you shop online for all your hammock needs? Shipping seems to be very expensive from most online stores

    Hi Karen,

    I have an online shop which caters for hangers - Tier Gear. I am based in Tasmania. There is not too many others down here apart from the bigger stores supplying Hennessy and the parachute hammocks.
