New to hanging, new here, and relatively new to solo camping. Wanted to say hello and thanks for the forums; I've found a lot of information here that's helped steer me in the directions that I've wanted to go with my gear.
Just got my Hennessey Expedition in the mail today; I'm actually sending this from my backyard on my netbook while lying in the hammock, listening to the rain on the fly.
I've been bike camping (think car camping with greater limits on gear weight--and especially gear volume--and you're not far wrong) for about six months now, and I have to say that the hammock is definitely the best summer solution that I've run across for keeping cool during the evenings here in FL. Definitely worth the sticker shock.
Anyway, thanks for the great collation of information here!
