    Northern Illinois, checking in

    Hello all,

    As it says above, I am from northern Illinois
    I was introduced to hammocks from my buddy last summer (apart from the hammock and stands you get from say Walmart) and decided to dive into it.

    I bought myself a Kammok roo double, a tarp, and bug net. Regrettably I don't use it much on account of lack of time recently but with my new full-time job compared to part-time I have a ton more time (weird how that works I know) and can't wait to really start getting into it.

    Look forward to lurking quite a bit here and stealing some of the good info you all have 😅

    Was that posted here? If not, where else should a hammock hanger look for northern Illinois events?

    Welcome to HF from southern WI. Once things settle down, I'm guessing more group hangs in IL and WI will be posted. There's a convivial bunch of hangers who regularly cross the border in both directions. Just follow Phantom Grappler's directions.
    The game is the best teacher.

    Welcome to the Forum! I'm up the road from you in Milwaukee. Unsure if you can make it, but BACONFEST HANG is coming up next week in Chippewa Falls, WI. Unsure of any other summer hangs right now, but several in the works for later in the year. Keep checking back for new posts. It would be great to have you attend!

    I'm up in MKE quite often with friends actually! I may not be able to make that bacon fest with my schedule being what it is, not to mention the lack of hardly any camping gear... as of now I just have the basics, hammock and straps, although I do have a tarp, and bug net I have never set them up yet..

    We have any gear you need to borrow. It's been tradition to have at least one new hammock camper attend. PM me and let's work out deets.
