Hi there everyone. I can't remember if I found these forums first or my first hammock first, but either way, I've been having fun figuring out this hanging business.
I've only been on two trips so far with my hammocks, so I'm still learning.
I have two hammocks, got a Grand Trunk double and one from REI that I cannot remember the name of. Tried the whole "get the girlfriend to go with" and as everyone says on the forums, it's tough to do two to a hammock (good thing I brought two hammocks) - I only made it half way through the night before I was numb from her laying on top of my arm and leg (she was perfectly comfortable, sound asleep of course).
Still trying to learn and try new things. I LOVE whoopie slings, and I'll post a trip report with a few pics from my most recent outing. Got the idea for the area from dejoha, off FSR 237 just south of Flagstaff, AZ. Can't wait to find out more tips and ideas for hanging. Gotta be happy with the girlfriend is into hanging with me, so we'll learn as we go and figure out what works best for us with lots of ideas from the forum!
