    hello from tampa bay

    Hello everyone. I'm a new hammocker from Tampa. I drive a bus for a living, so my work day usually involves alot of waiting around at point B to go back to point A. I bought an ENO singlenest hammock on impulse becasue I thought it might be neat to carry with me at work to lounge in. I was absolutely amazed at how comfortable it was. I couldnt believe it. I've been setting it up every chance I get.

    Im also a backpacker, so I cant wait to take it out with me on my next trip. I've yet to do an overnight in the hammock, but as soon as I get the chance I'll be heading out. Many thanks to the Hammock Forums. I'm glad I found all of you. It has been very helpful.
