Howdy fellow hangers,
I am am a newbie hammocker and former ground-dweller. I'm around technology a lot in my job (server/system administrator) and to offset this I like to get outdoors whenever I can.
My "hobby" budget is very limited (a wife and a 5-year old son will do that) so I have to acquire gear in bits and pieces. Right now I got started with a Equip travel hammock from Walmart, which surprisingly holds my 300lbs up pretty well. I modded it a little bit, retying the ropes at the ends and replacing the steel links with a couple CAMP nano 'biners. Right now I'm hooking it up to some towing straps, but I have ordered the ENO Atlas straps.
