    Noob needs education.

    Hey guys, after sleeping in my hammock for the first time ever (a WBBB) and just generally searching the forum about, well hammocking, It has occurred to me that I need more education!

    Can anyone point out a book/ guide i can purchase to give me a decent guide to the basics, I don't want to ask you all question after question and i can't be bothered typing it all out!
    Cheers, mattmacman.

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Ed's book is a good one but some years old. The Ultimate Hang was released just last fall so the info is the most up to date of anything that's in print off of this forum. If you could get both it would be worth it but if only one then UH is going to get you more current info to work with.

    The Ultimate Hang is the best digest of all the useful information you find here. It's money well spend and, if you buy it early, may save you more than its cost !
