    Smile Another jerk with a doublenest or: Hello from Madison!

    I got a doublenest for $15 from an REI sale, and I have been dying to get into the backcountry ever since (well, before that too). All I have right now is nylon webbing for suspension, and after watching shug's noob videos I am satisfied I can greatly enhance my experience with relative ease and reasonable (??? ... for now) cost. I have been lurking these forums for some time, and since you are all such a fine bunch I thought I'd join and introduce myself, though I won't have much to contribute yet.

    Thank you all!

    Welcome, welcome. I know Yellowstone Lake State Park is hammock friendly. That isn't to far from you.

    Can you get any more?

    SCORE DEAL hilo4321. That's not jerky, that's being budget minded!

    If you can afford to get more at that price, I am certain you could unload them on the forums here giving others a sweet deal and making a little for your efforts OR loan them to your hiking buddies. Just a thought.

    Nothing wrong with a ENO DN. Lots of us on the forum own them. I take mine on day hikes for when I take a break and do my afternoon hammock studies (take a nap) in it at home.
