    guy up in northern minnesota

    Hey everybody!

    I just got my hennessy and tried it out last night. Even though I wasnt really prepared to spend the night in the 10* cold I figured I would use what I had and try it out^. Living in the north makes us crazy that way I guess.

    As probably the first person to say this, thanks for all the insight, information, good humor, advice, and time wasted, ahem, i mean invested reading through the forums.

    I tried the hammock for the first time in january and those 15 minutes really opened a new world up and I am excited to explore in it refreshed from a comfortable hang and sleeping in bugless comfort.(although will admit i woke myself up snoring a couple of times--that was kinda buggy)


    ^i had to retire back to the house at around 2am chilly but smilin.

    Add another Minnesotan to the list. Welcome to the forum. Northern. Minn is about the best place for a hammock.

    My wife wonders how there are any forests left with the amount of wood I saw while I sleep... Even worse in a hammock...

    Welcome! There sure are a lot of Minnesotans on this forum
    When it seems like the night will last forever
    And there's nothing left to do but count the years
    When the strings of my heart start to sever
    And stones fall from my eyes instead of tears
    I will walk alone by the black muddy river
    And dream me a dream of my own
    -Jerry
