I have been backpacking for years and have done 5 section hikes on the AT and found this site via WB. I have also done quite a bit of other backpacking in Pennsylvania and West Virginia as well as other outdoor activities. I am thinking of getting a hammock, but I do not want to spend a ton of money on one just to find out that I do not like it. I work at a gear shop in Columbus that deals in Hennesy hammocks so I can get some kind of discount there. Do you all have any cheap hammock recomendations, or a good starter hammock from hennesy. My current tent is a Sierra Designs Asteroid CD which for tent, fly, pole, stakes and footprint weighs in somewhere just under 5 pounds. This weight is typically split between two people because it is a two person tent and my girlfriend often backpacks with me. Any information you all could provide for me would be greatly appreciated.
