I'm not entirely new to the idea of a hammock for lounging and just "hanging" around. We used to do it all the time back in Scouts. But that's where it stayed, strictly for lounging. It wasn't until a couple weeks ago that I came across the Hennesey site and then my interest was sparked and I went into to hyper-learning mode. I've been checking out Just Jeff's, Sgt. Rock's, and so many others' pages trying to learn as much as I can about hammock camping.
Well, my girlfriend and I are looking to purchase. After much research we've pretty much decided on the HH Scout for her and the HH Expedition for me. Sorry Speer, Clark, and Mosquito Hammock lovers. HH just seems to be best "bang for your buck."
The question I have is this, has anyone here ordered from Great Escapes Outdoor Sports (GEOS)? Main reasons are these:
We want to get the snakeskins, too, and I know that they come with the hammocks if you order directly from HH. With that factored in the prices are as follows:
GEOS Total checkout w/ shipping: $219.97
HH Total checkout w/ shipping: $249.90
I'm just wondering if the prices at GEOS are to good to be true. I don't want to get ripped off and I'm not a major camper, so I don't shop these types of things often.
Thanks in advance.
