    Hello from the motor city

    How's everybody doin'?

    I'm Todd, I live in the metro detroit area, I'm a backpacker, kayaker, and snowshoer.

    I joined to learn about hammocks cuz I don't sleep well on the ground.

    Like all noobs I am trying to pick a hammock to use instead of my tent.

    Welcome to the party. Lots of folks in your area of the country. The ground is dirty anyway, good riddance.

    Welcome to HF! Once you try hammock hanging you will never go to the ground again.

    Welcome aboard. Good to see Motor City represented. Did you get your bike from the dealer in Canton? Live down the road from there.
