Has been one year that I have been hammocking and I guess I was one of the lucky ones in that my first nite in a hammock was pure bliss. HH was where I began the journey and have progressed to making my own gear and am now an everynite sleeping in a hammock guy. I have shoulder problems that make sleeping anywhere else so far less comfy that I have given up on even trying.
I live on the "wet coast" of Canada and have four season camped in all conditions and temps and have so far kept dry, warm and pain free. I know what is meant by the "learning curve" as to what works and what dosen't and have now found what works for me. Many thanks to all who have helped here in this forum even thou for the most part they don't know how much they did. Truly a wealth of ideas and information. Have converted a few to hammocking and as there is no shrotage of trees here in the temperate rain forest that I live in, there is room for many more.
And on that note, I will finish packing my gear and head to the river for a bit more green therapy. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh blissssssssss
