    Newbie from NJ

    After 30 years of camping, canoeing and backpacking, I was finally converted to a hammock hanger this past weekend while camping on Mohican Island at Lake George, NY. I had the best night's sleep outside in as long as I can remember and didn't wake up once. On the ground I can't count the number of times I seem to wake up. I just hope I don't go broke feeding this new addiction!

    I used an ENO Double Nest with Atlas straps, Exped Scout Extreme Tarp, Exped Synmat LW 7 mat and a Montbell Super Spiral #3 Synthetic over me as a quilt.

    Welcome neighbor! There's plenty of information to take in here and like any new obsession, plenty of gear to play with! Fortunately for you, hammockers, like most outdoors enthusiasts, are a friendly lot. Whatever your questions, just ask and there will be many there to help.
