    Hi from NJ

    I've been lurking around for a few weeks now, and have done a couple of hangs in NY state. Thanks to everyone who contributes to the forum -- you've helped me out a lot!

    I first got a ENO DoubleNest from REI so that my girlfriend and I could bring it along on day hikes and camping trips. That was some time in July. A few weeks later, I was looking for a set-up that would enable me to see the stars while going to sleep on solo trips (I have a regular tent with a fly, etc.). As I was lookinng at bivy sacks and mesh tents, I suddenly thought, "Hmm, I wonder if I could just use that hammock I got." I googled "hammock camping," and discovered a new microcosm. I never had a chance -- I was doomed to be a hammock camper from that day forward.

    I've gone on two hammock camping trips so far. I'll post about them in the "Trip Reports" forum. Thanks again!

    There must be something in the water here in Joisey. There have been a flood of new Jersey members since I joined.
