    Hello and thank you for the information.

    Being 52 I find that it's just a little harder to get up off the ground, so I decided to join the community and leave the ground behind.

    After reading many of the posts within the forum I decided to buy a BBWW 1.1 hammock, an OES Standard tarp, a 3S Incubator and 3S Burrow, a peak bag and a vario stand.

    Thanks to all of you for all of the information and making the transition much easier.

    Happy trails and until we meet a new!

    I switched to a hammock for the same reason. Looks like you got some great gear, no messing around. Welcome to the forum.

    Welcome! You are off to a great start!

    You won't regret your decision. It's never too late to get comfortable - I took longer than you to realize it
