    Hello everyone!

    I've been perusing the forum for a little while, thought I should introduce myself and pronounce my "noobness".

    I have been backpacking for over 30 years (off and on). Over the past several years I have been helping out as a leader with my son's Boy Scout troop, getting them started in backpacking among other things.

    As I have gotten older, I have noticed that I am having a very difficult time getting any sleep on bp trips, so I thought I would give hammocks a try. I had a sizable REI dividend, so I am now the new owner of a HH expedition hammock--figured it would be good for starting out, and with the dividend it was basically "free".

    Anyway, without even using the hammock yet I have already changed to a whoopie sling suspension for quicker set-up. I'm also considering zipper options (probably DIY--I'm good at sewing) and a bigger/lighter tarp setup.

    Lots of good reading on these forums, and I look forward to participating!

    We are born naked, wet and hungry--then things get worse.
