    Hello from S.E. Michigan

    Greetings all,

    My name is Joseph and I am very new to hammocks. About ten years ago, I had a Mayan hammock that I replaced my bed with, but I discovered that I had been hanging incorrectly and had damaged my shoulders. After a year, My shoulders couldn't take it anymore and the hammock had broken beyond repair from snags.

    I found this forum recently and discovered that my problem was that I was hanging incorrectly, so I would like to give it another go. I tried making a makeshift hammock out of a bed sheet last night, but it was a miserable failure and was terribly uncomfortable.

    Another reason that I am eager to learn the proper ways to hang is that I may be doing some mission work that will more than likely require me to use a hammock for extended periods of time. I am looking forward to learning from all of you that seem to really know everything there is to know about these wonderful cradles.
    Sincerely and respectfully,
    Joseph Redgate
