    New to hanging, in fact as of right now, haven't hanged yet

    Hello All,

    I'm a east coaster living in Edmonton AB.

    I'm brand new to hanging. Recently purchased a hennessy safari xxl and I can wait to give it a go. It's been raining everyday since I received it.

    I can't wait to give it a go.

    Cheers

    I found hammocking in the rain (hang correctly of course) is one of the advantage that tenting less enjoy of. able to feel the rain drop but not worry get wet.

    Welcome! Once you get your set-up dialed in, you will probably be itching for the chance to hang in the rain...there is just something satisfying about swinging comfortably in your hammock in a rain storm, nice and dry under your tarp. Enjoy!

    Welcome!!

    Don't let the rain stop you! It's just a little different. And the sound of rain on the tarp while sleeping is sure to help you have a great sleep!

    Cheers Mate!
