    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!!
    You haven't even begun to suffer/relax (how ever you wish to look at it ). Don't forget about Elephant trunks, Bridge Hammocks, 3 season gear, adjustable ridgelines, thingys to cook breakfast from the hammock, winter gear, DIY this and that, and on and on and on...... Oh wait that was my wish list. Welcome to the forums.

    We are a pathetic lot.

    Here's the hammock camping 12 step program you're looking for.

    Be sure to catch MacEntyre's Declaration of Hammock Independence. It's a good read.

    It's not an addiction; it's a sacrifice.

    the twelve steps to hammock addiction
    1. Buy said hammock (they are like potato chips "you just can't have one").
    2. Mod said hammock (you can always make it better).
    3. Take hammock and yourself out side.
    4. Find two trees 10-15 ft apart.
    5. Wrap webbing around said trees.
    6-10. Spent adjusting for the perfect hang.
    11. Get in.
    12. Relax. AHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

    Welcome to the madness that is Hammock Forums.

    Cheers

    I'm with Brian. What's the problem? We all understand that ..."need" for the gear.

    Just relax... and go with the flow. Don't harsh your buzz dude.... go with the flow.

    Hey Peacedog! This addiction ( I mean quest for the ultimate gear) sure beats playing golf!

    I checked the other day and I only have six hammocks. I NEED one for every day of the week. Now what can I do? I have webbing, whoopie slings, Dutchie things, and now I find out that I need cookie things.

    When will it all end?

    I don't call it an addiction. It's a passion.

    Don't argue with the alligator until after you cross the river.

    I haven't taken out my clubs in two years. After all this money I've spent on hammock gear, there's very little left for other recreation.

    If I get this cold weather camping down, I may still be able to go skiing occasionally. Skiing is just too fun to give up. I can tell the wife that I'll stealth camp in the hammock so there's no hotel bill!
