    Old guy checking in.

    Hey everbody! Well we have to start sometime. Been a tarp and bivi camper for a long time. Very long time. Completely new to hammock camping. As soon as my tax return shows up Blackbird 1.1 Double will be ordered. My friend RoundBear suggested that I join this forum to learn all I could learn. Also, Adam of Hammock Gear suggested the same thing. So here I am. Happy to be a member here.

    I don't think hammocking would be as much fun without this site and everyone here to help and give you ideas. You know you're into this when you start modding your gear.

    Welcome to the world of hanging. You're gonna dig it.
