I'm another lurker that finally decided to sign up. I bought my hammock in August after wanting to try it out for the past couple of years. I've been waiting for my sons to get a little older and more experienced camping before I left them in a tent to themselves. Thanks to all for all the information here. The forums have been a great resource as I get started. It's awesome such a community exists! I'm looking forward to introducing my boys to hammock camping, hopefully with a DIY rig they can help me create.
