Been lurking on this forum for some time. A little more active on Whiteblaze.
On my recent outing finishing the Susquehannock trail I was amazed at how much better I hiked after spending a night at a motel to get out of remants of hurricane Irene. That's when I started to realize that at my age (64) I was not sleeping very well on the ground anymore. Tossing and turning all night and waking up with lots of aches and pains.
So I pulled the trigger and ordered a hammock. Now I am on a cram session on this forum to try and learn everything I can about hanging. I will refrain from asking any stupid questions as long as I can. Forums and search function seem to provide enough information to keep me busy for some time to come.
Hope to sleep as comfortable as some of the posts here indicate. Guess it can't be any worse.
