    Hi

    Hi everyone. I just was introduced to hammock camping this fall. I have always been a ground hugger, but in october my friend inroduced me to his HH while camping. Since then I have been looking at them and comparing prices.

    I grew up in Western NY on a small farm where my parents taught us to be self-sufficient. I sew, crochet, cook, bake, and do handmade-crafts. Since I enjoy making things I decided I would like to make my first hammock. I guess I found the right place to hang-out

    Thanks for the great site, hope to see you around
