    My first tree lounge

    I got my BB, TQ, UQ, tarp and ventured out into the great piney woods yesterday. Weather man said mid 20's for the low. Got the hammock up rather quick, and also the tarp with no problems thanks to all the great info from here. Never got cold whatsoever until I had to releave myself at 2:45 lol.Got back inside and warmed up rather quickly. Not a bad first time hang even though I found out this morning my tarp was kinda put up sideways Still learning but already hooked. RJ55

    Well, it looks like you have caught the 'fever', but this is a fever you'll enjoy! You have a great looking setup there; and with some great scenery what else can you ask for? Thanks for sharing.

    Every outing is a learning experience. If you didn't learn something, you weren't paying attention.
