    Hello from NYS & Pics of my first hang

    Hello from the Finger Lakes of upstate NY. I just wanted to thank everyone on this forum (especially shugg and the grizz for their youtube videos which are great for newbies) for helping me with my first serious hammock setup:

    ENO Doublenest.
    Removed the stock suspension and replaced with amsteel (passed 4 time through the end channel) and connected to descender rings via two anchor hitches (to minimize rings sliding away form eachother). Then on to 15 ft. polypro straps for huggers with CAMP nano carabieners.


    Since I know everyone loves pics, here are some from today's hang at my favorite swimming hole.
