    Welcome polecat!

    I'm a new guy too (not only to the forum, but to hammocking as well). How much effort did it take to get your scouts all hanging? I assist with a group of younger scouts (12 & 13 year olds) and it seems like hammocks would sell themselves once they saw someone else doing it. Plus, making hammocks seems like it would be a great activity. Any advise or tips?
