I found this site almost by accident after looking at some bushcraft videos. I had no idea hammocks were used for serious camping, but I could see the benefits right away! Sleeping comfortably, setting up and breaking camp in virtually no time - these were things I never associated with hiking before! Also, I really liked the plethora of suspension ideas that are out there - tinkering with the gear will definately become a hobby in it's own right!
I decided on a HH UL Explorer for my first hammock - I'll be using it for fishing trips and general hiking - maybe even hunting in the future. So far, I have managed to hang it loosely in my apartment just to check it out and mount the snakeskins, but tomorrow I'll be trying it for real
Thanks for providing so many wonderfully creative ideas and getting me hooked on hammocking! See you around
