First great site, soooo much information, been reading for days now
Looks like I'm another Scouter looking for alternatives, just got back into working with the kids again and a brand new set of youngsters to boot.
I want to get the hang of this hammock thing as an alternative to the traditional tents.
Question 1 - I`m a short 5`2` and 195 lbs, with 2 bad lower discs and a side sleeper just to add another issue to the mix. Is a hammock a viable option in your opinion.
Having read many posts, I`m thinking about possibly a hennessy Expedition, ( reservations about the weight limit) or an explorer UL (either with Whoopie Slings,) and an upgraded Hex Tarp.
Question 2 being as we will be winter camping later this year, does anyone have any suggestions for sub zero insolation suggestions.
