    Hello From New Mexico

    This is my first hammock, a eno doublenest, and I love it. Well my 2 and 9 year old love it more than I. So now I have been looking at hammock camping. I see that you can get more comfort for less weight. For me that is great. I am the only true pack mule for a family of 5, including myself) and trying to get a good trip out in the woods takes a lot of prep. With hammocks the setup time is cut down greatly.
    At the present time I am using towing straps for hangers. I have come up with my own idea though. It may not be as light as these whoopie slings people talk about, but it will be as light or lighter than d-rings(I hope :-) ). I will post my idea when complete.
    It is great to meet you all. Will be in asking a lot more question in the future.

    Welcome to HF from Georgia! They say that ENO's are a gateway hammock. It may be what you start with but you'll end up with other brands too. Welcome to the madness!
    Everyone ought to believe in something....I believe I'll go set up the hammock!

    Welcome to the forums from South Carolina. That suspension you are working on will probably be the first of many DIY projects.

    Welcome to the site. I lived in New Mexico when I was 16. It's a beautiful state.
