    Thumbs up Hey from the Gulf Coast

    A fellow scouter has been hanging for the last few outings with our sons' troop. He bought a HH Ultralight customized from the for sale section here.

    After getting my curiosity up and me backpacking with a Eureka Solitaire on uneven ground, packing a pad, and such to stay comfortable. I see this HH not touching the uneven ground that was causing my misery.....

    Here I am.
    I have been lurking for a week or so, reading and reading....
    I have decided on my entry level setup.

    Since I may pass this one on to my son if I don't care sleeps....
    Here it is:
    An ENO DN with an ENO Dry fly
    a Complete setup from Whoopie Slings 8' straps and 8' slings plus Dutch clips. (The planted pine forests around the area warrant the longer slings and straps.)

    I am making my own custom bug net from a Mozzie cot net.

    I should have all the components by Memorial day and plan to op test that weekend on a family camping trip.

    So what I am saying is, Thanks for the info!! I would have surely bought the miserable Slap strap pros if it wasn't for this forum.
