    Hi From Wales in the UK

    Hi everyone - I'm a hammocking newbie so looking to get some good ideas from this forum.

    Hammocking is really taking off in the UK and my back was not holding up well to sleeping on the ground so I'm in 'transition mode' from tents to tarps & hammocks.

    Make my first hammock for a few pounds (dollars) and it worked well but took me a couple of nights to get the hang of it but looking fwd to much more hammock camping in the future.

    Paul.

    welcome to the madness from the other side of the pond.

    my back was not holding up well to sleeping on the ground
    Many us over here in got into hanging due to our backs and the comfort compared to sleeping in a tent.
