    Newbie Near Dallas

    Hello All. My name is Ryan and I just got my first hammock. I bought an ENO DN and bug net as an impulse buy at my local REI. After playing with it for a while, and returning the slapstraps, I started researching hammocks and found this site. Its been great, but I now have a wish list that is getting expensive.

    I am waiting on some suspension straps from Warbonnet. When those get here, I want to get out on some overnights.

    Any suggestions for good spots near DFW?

    Also, need some advice for some other camping/backpacking gear. I have some gear from back in the day, but needs some updating.

    Thanks for all the advice!

    Ryan

    Cole...me too...I ordered the straps from Warbonnet for the ENO...My plan is to try it out, and if I really get into it, order a WBBB and keep the ENO for backup/backyard
