    Hello from the Nation's Capital

    Hello from DC! I am somewhat new to the forum (made a few posts - Thanks very much to everyone for the helpful info) and quite new to hammock camping.

    I've started with a Hennessy as it seems most folks do, but have recently ordered a blackbird to try out after some ankle discomfort. I have a surgically repaired right ankle (rugby injury!), and its pretty tough to make that entire leg comfortable now, so I'm hoping a footbox is what the doctor ordered. Regardless, in the few nights I've spent in the Hennessy after hiking all day, I've been pleasantly surprised with how great my feet feel in the mornings.

    Looking forward to getting to know folks on the forum.. I can already tell that this is quite a friendly and helpful group. Cheers! - Zack

    Welcome to the forums from Indiana. I got my WBBB for my knee problems. It's helped considerably. It's a very comfortable hammock.

    Welcome from the Jersey Shore. There's a group hang coming up near you at Gathland State Park in Maryland on October 19-21, the Fall MAHHA.

    Here's the thread:

    Drop in if you have a chance. It's a great way to meet HF members and check out some different hammocks and rigs.
