Hey fellow hangers, My name is Eric and I'm just getting into hanging. My family always had cheap backyard hammocks when I was a kid and I spent many hours hangin as a kid. Just last spring in Steamboat Springs, CO my girlfriend had just picked up an ENO double-nest hammock and we spent many hours hanging between aspen trees snuggling and falling in love. We moved to WA/OR for raft guiding and kayaking and one of my fellow guides Dereck from Arkansas informed us that hanging is an art and he slept in his hammock every night. We spent many nights hanging and some sleeping on my raft. I fell in love with hanging and have been dreaming about getting a bad-*** hammock for myself now that she broke up with me. So I've been doing on-line research(how a found this forum)looking to purchase a hammock.
Been looking at the Warbonett double layer BB 1.1 or the Hennessy Expedition Asylm. Like that the Hennessy comes with a tarp and is less expensive, but the Warbonett BB seems to be the way to go. Looking for opinions on these and other suggestions you might have for a begginer hanger Oh yeah, mainly will be using for car/raft camping and occasional kayak self support camping. I'm 5'9 170
