    Darn you Hammock Forums!!

    Look what you made me do!!

    First, it was a HH Expedition. My first hammock, sweet...... every things cool.

    But wait.... that suspension does not seem too user friendly. Ahhhhhhhhhh.... whoopie slings to the rescue. Thanks Shug. Made my first mod. Sweet..... every things cool.

    But wait..... some guy name DUTCH decides to create all these cool shiny little accoutrements that make swingin from trees a little easier. Dutch Buckles on the credit card!! Sweet...... every things cool.

    But wait..... My girl kinda fell for my HH. So now I have just ordered a WBBB
    from Brandon that will be shipped in a day or so. Yeah Me!!!!!! Sweet..... every things cool right?

    Of course it's NOT COOL!! We all know whats coming.... UQ.....TQ.......Another tarp or 2 or 3, and whatever the hell Dutch can dream up!!

    Please stop I'm getting dizzy

    oops........ forgot about the Kelty Noah's 12

    This is only a couple months in to this new hobby......... is there a 12 step program available??

    Hi I'm PeaceDog and I have a problem!!

    Welcome to the club. I started with the Kelty Noah's 9 and now I have a Superfly. I'm sure my ENO will be upgraded to a blackbird as soon as funds allow. I'm trying to hold off on that for a while.
    I was told there'd be no math on this exam. ~T.D.

    PeaceDog,

    Perhaps it's just me, however I fail to see what your problem is . Everything you describe is perfectly normal for the folks here.

    Welcome to the madness that is Hammock Forums.

    Cheers

    Brian

    I know the feeling, all this stuff and the gadgets that go with it are irresistible.

    You, sir, are hopelessly lost. Beyond redemption and bereft of hope for a normal existence. But this begs the question, 'Why would you want to be normal?'. To be uncomfortable and wet like the ground dwellers? Hang high and free and live a life less normal !!! OK, not too high, 'cause someday you will fall and that just plain hurts, whether you are normal or not.

    A group hang is actually more of an enabler than an intervention.
