Hello everyone. I just received my HH ULBPA yesterday, so I'm very new to this. It's my first hammock, and the second free hammock and free snakeskins is what really swayed me. I already converted it to a whoopie sling suspension with dutch clips form JRB, and I ordered a Driducks poncho at the same time that I've modified to use as a weathershield. I needed rain protection anyways, and at $9 I thought I'd try it out. I upgraded my tarp to the Hennessy Hex, which I knew would be larger, but WOW. That thing is pretty huge. For now I'll be using my 20* bag and pad, but plan on upgrading to quilts sometime after the first of the year. I've been ground bound for about 20 years, so I'm pretty excited to start my hanging experience.
