Hi all you hangers,
My wife was asking me what I wanted for Christmas while we were at REI and I suggested that a hammock might be interesting so I took a quick look around the net, found and purchased a Hennessey.
New years eve, after watching the ball drop in Times Square, I went out and slept in the hammock for the first time. WOW. Very comfortable. I was hooked. Have since added some 6x6 timbers to the deck to hang a hammock from and my wife is saying "when do I get one".
Looking at Youtube, I found and watched a lot of hammock videos including a bunch of Whooo Buddy videos. A lot referenced hammockfourms, took a look, liked what I saw so here I am. Lots of great info here and what looks like a lot of good folks too.
Slept out a couple of weeks ago when snow was predicted (if Shug could do it, so could I) and it was great, a little cold, but I enjoyed it. Have since rigged an under blanket.
Looking forward to camping out in the hammock this spring, and enjoying a lot of weekend hikes with the hammock(s).
See y'all on the forum and in the woods.
I now own 10' of Amsteel Blue and know what a Woopie Sling is.
