After seeing this post this morning: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...169#post784169 (ENO DN on sale: $45.46) I ditched my plans to start with a DIY hammock. Once the DN arrives I can start making plans for DIY mods and accessories. Between the price of this hammock on sale and my busy schedule, it just did not make sense to start with anything else. Thanks to the contributors of this thread for convincing me that the ENO DN is an okay first hang!
PS: Now on to find a members' intro forum so I can introduce myself.
