    Getting ready for camping and relaxation

    Lately I've decided I need more relaxation and less work in my life. I'm trying to spend more time in the outdoors and figured a hammock would be the perfect way to enjoy camping. I've spent enough nights on the ground when I was younger to realize that its just not for me. Looking forward to getting more experience and help with my hammock decisions.

    Cheers!

    Welcome, this site is a wealth of resources, read like crazy, follow posts and you will find terms and acronyms you had no idea existed. Folks here are very supportive and helpful to one another. Again, welcome and enjoy the world of hanging, I love it.

    You figured right. Welcome!

    Welcome from one hammock newb to another. You can look at it this way,

    Have Hammock Will Travel reads the card of a man.
    A hanger is comfy in a savage land.

    His warm under quilt for hire head's the calling wind.
    A new happy hanger is the man called Paladin.

    Paladin, Paladin
    Where do you hang?
    Paladin, Paladin,
    Far, far from home.

    It's really strange, that I was just watching Paladin as I was reading your post.
