    Hey from the FL Panhandle

    As I sit here rocking a toddler in a hammock, I thought I'd say hello.

    I feel like I'm in a 12 step program...

    Hi, my name is Stephanie and I have a hammock addiction. I have 8 kids currently at home, 4 full-time hammock sleepers and the other 4 part-time. (Deep Breath) I have made 4 hammocks in the last week, but I didn't sleep in them! A few were for a sleepover and some were for research purposes.

    (Deep Breath) I find myself browsing the forums for inspiration and I let my kids take part in the obsession. My 16yr old boys will be experimenting with 2 different insulations over the weekend in the backyard. And I make them take notes.

    Thank you guys so much for letting me share.

    Converting the next generation to hanging, one little person at a time.

    Wonderful! I used to live in Highlands County... Florida is such a relaxing place to live. A hang in Florida on the beach(gulf side)... now that is a must attend function! If you have any questions ask, don't feel shy.

    Oh, and welcome to the forum.

    Welcome, Stephanie! Not disassemble!

    I take it you miss Virginia...

    I spent a good part of my childhood in Tallahassee and Gainesville, when my folks shared a house with my uncle and his wife and kids. There were six of us young'uns. Sure wish someone had made us hammocks! We did get a tree house made from a piano box.

    Keep up the good work!

    Welcome to the forums! Pretty soon you and your boys will be posting tutorials here on your hammocking discoveries.

    Hope you find time to sleep at some point. Keep taking those Deep Breaths!

    welcome to HF there is noe other forum like it that I have found. Everyone is out to help the other forum memebers with any and all things hanging. good luck with the group of kids and see if one of them will help with hammock making so you can rest a little.
