    Smile Greetings from Rockford, MI!

    Hi Everyone,

    I discovered the Hennessy Hammock earlier this year and I've been absolutely obsessed with it ever since. I'm a long time backpacker and kayaker, but the concept of hammock camping was a TOTAL game-changer in the overall camping experience.

    I found out about this forum after seeing a few YouTube clips that referenced the site (all of which were really cool videos, btw). I wasn't able to get out and hang as much as I would've liked to this summer (I'm currently in school getting a masters degree in business - which has consumed a lot of my free time), but I'm hoping to hit it hard in 2013 as my schedule clears up.

    I reside in Rockford, MI (just north of Grand Rapids) and I look forward to learning more from everybody!

    Thanks for the invite Dblcorona, much appreciated! Unfortunately, I have a previously scheduled event on the 13th in Muskegon, but hopefully I'll make it to the next one. I hope y'all have fun!

    Welcome from another Michiganian, where the trees are just the right height.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
