    Howdy from Kansas City

    Hi folks, Big time Newbie here. At this moment, I don't actually own my own hammock but I hope to change that very soon. I have been reading reviews and watching videos gaining all the info I can. I have borrowed a couple Hennessy Hammocks from my FIL and I think I've narrowed it down the one I want.

    Anyone else from the KC area with some hammock knowledge?

    Welcome! I lived in KC most of my life, but now I’m down in the Ozarks. The Hammock Forums is a great place to learn about gear!

    I bet there's some great hanging locations down in the Ozarks!

    Definitely plenty of trees to choose from!

    Welcome to the forum! Welcome to hammock camping! Welcome to Kansas City!

    Do you mind me asking what you've decided on as your FIRST hammock?

    I took advantage of the matching gift card special from Hennessy and I'm not quite sure which one I want now. I was leaning towards the Survivorman but the more I think about it the more I like the Jungle Explorer. I'm almost thinking of putting in some eyebolts in the basement and setting up the ones I've borrowed and see what I think.

    What was your first hammock?

    I just mounted eyebolts in my basement the other day. I'm loving it! So easy to set up and take down to test and re-test. Beats trying to troubleshoot in the field. I think I'm going to build a PHS from the DIY forums this weekend to test in the backyard. Fun stuff man! Welcome!

    That's awesome! I just put the eye bolts up on my basement last night and I realized that I could set up another set and watch TV from the hammock.
