    New from the Texas Hill Country

    Hi folks,

    Just joined up. What started as idle curiosity about hammock camping over at the Grizzleman forum turned into a long discussion, which was joined in by some members here who have been VERY helpful. I'm getting serious about it now, and figured I should join in and use your excellent resources here.

    Right now I have an ENO Single-Nest hammock. I've purchased materials to try to make my own bug netting and tarp. So hopefully within the next few weeks I'll be able to cobble together a basic hammock camping setup and commence hanging!

    Being an engineer, I can quite easily turn into a 'gear head' on whatever hobby I happen to be interested in, and it seems you folks really have this hammock stuff down to a science. Lots of great ideas I'd have never dreamed of!

    Welcome to the Forums!
    My first hiking experiences were all in the Texas Hill Country; Canyon Lake, when the Houstonites went home.
    Trust nobody!
