Hi, my name is Dave from CO. Sorry in advance if this ends up being a long post.
A few months ago I purchased an ENO DN. At first it was a recreational endeavor but soon after I discovered this site, and it really piqued my interest in using my hammock for more than just a place to nap.
After reading a lot of posts and watching a lot of videos from Shug and others I decided that one goal this summer was to spend at least one night in my hammock.
Over the past few months I learned and made my own Whoopie Slings using directions posted here and have been hanging as much as possible.
Recently though, for my birthday, my wife bought me a bug shield for my ENO DN and last weekend, on a camping trip at Boysen Reservoir in WY, I had my first overnight hang.
Like most everyone here, I immediately fell in love and want to make it my primary mode of sleep while in the woods. But I'm lacking in a few areas so I am finally posting my introduction in order to get ideas from the group.
Currently my sleep set up is:
Hammock: ENO DN
Bug Net: ENO Bug Shield
Sleeping Bag: Big Agnes Lost Ranger 15°
Sleeping Pad: Big Agnes Insulated Core
Tarp: ??? TBD
Underquilt: ??? TBD
I have really learned a lot by lurking and am a happy hanger that is looking forward to more hangs in the future.
