Used to hang in high school using one of those fist sized net hammocks and an army poncho. Slowly moved to tents, tarps and then on a scout trip with my son saw my first Hennessey hammock. I bought one the next week.

I still have an assortment of tents ... But really like the hammock. I use an oversized truck window shade with a piece of fleece sewn on top for insulation. After running across this forum, it seems like an UQ will be my next experiment.

I've done 2 tours as a Cub scout den leader and am currently on my 2nd tour as an assistant scout master. Our troop has several HH scout model hammocks.

I ride a Suzuki C50 and was on the web site and learned of this hammock forum. Great stuff on this site! I'm learning quite a lot.
