    My first hammock

    I was planning on a diy hammock and just hadn't found the right material
    for it yet close to me. Just happend to check out wilderness logics website
    over thanksgiving and they were running some pretty good deals so I ordered
    one of the lite owls for not much more than I would have spent on diy setup.

    I put some eyebolts in the wall so I could try it out and was thinking that
    it might take awhile to get used to sleeping in a hammock but I have been
    sleeping great every night for the last couple weeks in it.

    Have been impressed with the quality of the hammock also and can't wait to
    use it on my bikepacking trip of the colorado trail this summer. I think a good nights sleep during this adventure will really be important in being able to
    make to the end. Just need to get a tarp and I'll have my sleep system
    at around 3lbs complete I hope.

    Sure am glad to have all the info of this site to help this newbie out.

    Hey bikepacker, sounds like you are on your way! What are you going to do for bug protection and insulation?
    Don't let life get in the way of living.

    I need to talk to some of the previous riders to see if bugs were much of a problem and I am going to use a down bag with a pad to keep warm and I
    can always wear some of my warm riding clothes at night if I need a little
    extra to keep warm. This trip is really a race but I am doing it just for fun
    and the challenge so I am wanting to stay as light as possible as alot of
    time is spent doing hikeabike when it is too rough or steep to ride.
