Hello all, I was very excited to find this site in my search for my next hammock. I started hammock camping three years ago on a whim just to see how it compared to tent camping. Of course the weekend we chose to camp consisted of rain and then a bit more rain and then some wind and rain. You know what? I've never stayed so dry on a camping trip.
I was an immediate convert. Over the next three years, I've made converts of my girlfriend and just about every other person that has come camping with us.
With the camping season coming up, I'm ready to upgrade my gear. I started with a Grand Trunk Ultralight (Campmor special) and really liked it while it lasted. After a couple of seasons though, it broke in a spectacular fashion (a story to be related at some future point) and it was immediately replaced with an Eno Single Nest. Honestly, it isn't quite right for me. I find the fabric really stretchy and have noticed that I can't seem to get as diagonal as i had with the Grand Trunk. So, I'm hear to look for advice on what my next hammock should be (leaning towards one of the Hennessys or Warbonnet Blackbirds currently).
Also, I just noticed that there were meetups through this site and now i'm really looking forward to taking a trip or two with other people in the northern nj/nyc area.
Thanks in advance.
