    Thumbs up hello from a scoutmaster in KY

    Been lurking on here off and on for a while. seeing if the whole hanging thing would be a good ( and economical ) Thing for my boys to do as an alternative to tents. The whole "Leave no Trace" approach is an added bonus.
    I can see where homemade gear could be a great alternative to store bought , as modifying to size specs. My 13 year old son is 6'4" so I'm constantly spending for adult or larger sized equipment and gear .
    Thanks a lpt for all the info on this site. I'm looking forward to a winter camp-out in a hammock with UQ and TQ.

    The Smokies . I'm going to try to "Hang" down there next month, Looking forward to my first Backpacking trip in about 20 years. The ground isn't any softer now. That's another reason I'm interested in Hammocks. Been a lot of improvements across the board from my hay days.

    Welcome from a Texas Scoutmaster...I am in the process of getting some boys in hammocks too. 2 down and about 20 to go.
    Lack of preparation on your part does not constitue an emergency on mine.


    Not sure who said it ...but I like it
