    Hello from Soggy Cincinnati

    Hello, my wife and I have been closet stalkers of the HF for about 2 weeks now. Finally decided to stop sleeping on the ground and see how the other half lives. WE are avid backpackers that are not afraid to travel to see Mother Natures' awesomeness. Well figured I would finally stop stalking and actually be a participant in the forums discussion.

    Welcome aboard!

    If you haven't purchased your hammocks yet you might consider a road trip to visit Dream Hammock in Fredericksburg, OH. Mama & Papa Smurf (Deanna & Randy) welcome visitors (usually on Sundays I believe). Perhaps you could make one last ground camping excursion to Mohican State Park, which is nearby, and then stop at Dream Hammock on the way home. That way you both could get a chance to lay in a couple of hammocks to see what you like.

    I live in Lexington, Ky and also feel your pain about it being soggy. Welcome to the forum and be sure to check out some of the great videos that users have posted. I learned a lot from them.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I do plan to email randy from dream to set a time I can come check out some hammocks. My in laws live in the little town of Shreve which I believe is pretty close to his shop and Mohican state park. We usually camp around the southern part of Ohio and we do a good bit in Kentucky and Indiana. Just started planning a section hike for the AT for next spring. S we plan on doing some major miles from now till February.
