    First time

    So I've been following this website for a long time. I've watched almost every youtube video on hammock camping.

    You all had me convinced from the start. I'm going on my first hang this weekend. Going to do a short backpacking trip in Shenandoah National Park and take the hammock out for the first time.

    I've done a bunch of backyard hangs and try-outs so we'll see how it goes this weekend.

    I'm starting with the ENO double nest cause it was one of the few on the cheaper side. I'm getting really close to buying the blackbird due to all the rave reviews. I've got my kelty noah's tarp 12 cause I already had to for car camping. I've found that since it's so big, I can set it up like a winter tarp and be all set.

    Should be a good time.
