    Greetings From South Florida

    Hello! I am from Boca Raton Florida, a place where there is nearly no camping. I came here mainly for advice on buying my second hammock, more on that below, but I forgot how fun DIY threads are. As an engineering major, I am looking forward to enacting some of the things there.
    My first hammock was a Lawson Blue Ridge Camp Hammock I bought without doing enough research. The thing capsizes way too easily to be used as a hammock, but it does make a good one person bivy. Since my acquisition of a walking stick and this picture: http://hennessyhammock.com/images/astent5462.JPG
    I have decided to get rid of that hammock and I will most likely be purchasing a Hennessy, unless convinced otherwise. I am looking forward to becoming more knowledgeable in the art of hanging.

    Welcome to the forums!

    Good luck on your quest to find out what your next hammock should be. A good way narrow down the choices out there (nearly all of them good) is to attend a hang and lay in a few hammocks there.

    I kinda wish I had done that. Not that I'm not happy with my ENO, but I don't have much to compare it to.
