    Greetings from the UK

    Hi,

    I'm new to hammocks but have used a tent a lot before. I stumbled across Shugs videos some time ago and my interest grew from there.

    Just ordered a WBBB and Superfly. These will come with me on a bicycle tour for the next 12-18 months. I'm looking forward to using a hammock up in Sweden, lots of trees there .

    I should be in the US next year as part of the tour, maybe I'll bump into some of you.

    Have fun,

    Ian

    Glad you stumbled into the good comfort a hammock will bring you. A nice cuppa and Crunchie in the forest is the way to go........
