    A Hammock vendor is just a pusher. Paul fell off the wagon so much he had to start selling....

    A co-worker just brought this up with me this week and it didn't set too well with me. He started asking questions like:

    Let's just say that answering those questions was painful. I have a lot of gear and most of it is 'good' gear. To be fair, it does get used. I try to help as many people learn about hammocks as possible, so I keep a good stock. Just what I consider my camping inventory from memory:

    Hammocks
    Warbonnet Outdoors Blackbirds: 2x 1.7 Dbl - 1.1 Dbl- 1.7 Single
    Warbonnet Outdoors Travelers: 1.7 Single - 1.1 Dbl
    Tree To Tree Trail Gear: 1.7 Switchback Single
    DD Hammocks: 2x Frontline - Travel - Camping
    Speer Hammocks: 8.5 & IIIA
    Hennessy Hammocks: 2x Deep Jungle XL - 2x Expedition - Safari No Net - Explorer Deluxe & UL
    Trek Light: 2x Dbl - Single
    ENO: 3x Dbl - 2x Single
    Ticket To The Moon: Single & Double
    Grizzly Adams: Grizz Bridge
    Claytor Hammocks: Jungle Hammock - No Net - 2x Expedition
    Grand Trunk: All Terrain Hybrid - Skeeter Beater Pro - UL Travel
    Byer of Maine: Moskito Traveller
    Parrot Bay: Key Largo Deluxe
    I'm sure there are more, but that's all I can remember right now. Plus, there are my DIY hammocks, which number more than a few.

    Tarps
    Warbonnet Outdoors: 3x SuperFly (including prototype) - Edge - Diamond Aysm - Big Mamajama...plus the impending arrival of a new camo SuperFly.
    OES: MacCat Micro Spinn - MacCat Standard Spinn - MacCat Standard - 2x MacCat Deluxe
    DD Hammocks: 2x DD Tarp - 2x DD Tarp XL
    Speer Hammocks: 2x 8x10 - Winter Tarp
    Hennessy Hammocks: Stock tarps for all Hennessy hammocks
    Trek Light: V9
    Claytor Hammocks: 2x Diamond Fly
    Again, I'm sure I missed a couple/few.

    Quilts
    Warbonnet Outdoors: 3x 3Season Yeti (one synthetic prototype) - Winter Yeti - 3Season Black Mamba - Winter Black Mamba - 3Season Prototype TQ
    Jacks R Better: Shenandoah - Rocky Mtn. Sniveler - 3Season Mt. Washington
    Speer Hammocks: SnugFit
    KAQ: Patrick designed and built KAQ
    Ray Jardine: Ray-Way Quilt
    Plus, I have a total of 4 DIY down topquilts and 2 synthetic.

    As bad as this list is, it only represents the big ticket items and is specific to the hammock portion of the addiction. More specifically, it only represents the outdoor side of my addiction. Indoor hammocks would easily double the hammock list. Add in all the backpacks (5), stoves, stakes, lights, stuff sacks, knives, clothing, biners, clips, mini-biners, Fig 9s, tarp flyz, blah, blah, blah. Well, it's downright frightening! Granted, many items were bought used, given for free or discounted in exchange for testing, traded for other items, etc, but just the idea of what my gear room would be worth at retail pricing....I refuse to even consider it!

    You know that old joke about a man's greatest fear being that he die before his wife and she sells his stuff for what he told her he paid for it? I get that joke and it haunts my dreams.

    Stop yourself while you still have hope. There is no need to suffer the hammock life that I have been burdened with.

    If you are looking for a cure, um, , wrong place! Sympathy? Yea, we got that for you,, or at least we would if we weren't out: Buying, making & testing new gear ourselves.

    And, I think there is something in the application form stating something like: "Caution, hammocking can be addictive" it's in really really fine print, I think there is also a warning somewhere stating the same about DIY. So you have no one to blame but yourself!

    Blame HF member turk. I know he went through a divorce that caused him to sell-off much of his gear, so I don't know what he still has in his sanctum sanctorum. But let me tell ya, pre-divorce that fella had a gear room that would make most any gearhead weep a few tears of joy. Haven't seen him post for a while, but he is still the King of Gear from where I sit.

    I think I would like to meet this Turk.

    I have a few things in my gear closet and to this day, still have to convince the wife that it does, in fact, get 'used'.

    But then you will have to have other groups for stove addicts, whoopie sling addicts, DIY addicts.......the list is just unbelievable.
    That's the problem with this addiction. There is no support system. The only people who understand the problem are on HF and feed off each other.

    I haven't even been to a group hang yet, but can't imagine they are any better. Its like an open bar at an AA meeting or seeking support at the local frat house!

    By the way, I would like to thank everyone for including links in your posts...it makes ordering new gear much faster and easier.
