Hello from Central Texas. Like most, I just read your posts for a while trying to glean a bit of wisdom, advice and passion for hammocking (is it a word?) But I didn't introduce myself because I was too green to even know what to ask.
I registered so that I could buy a Hennessey Hammock from one of the members (thanks Kerry.) I wanted to post but I figured I should wait until the hammock arrived. Then I waited until I hung it in the backyard. Then I waited until I slept most of a night, again in the backyard.
I still don't consider myself a hammocker (again with the made-up words!) but I do appreciate the comfort and simplicity of the whole concept. I have a plan to backpack in the Arkansas Ouachita mountains this Spring. By then I hope to qualify as a hammocker, hammocking on the trail and marginally qualified to comment on hammockization.
