I just took my son (finally convinced him) to his first Cub Scout meeting last week. I'm looking forward to him getting involved. I hope to impart some of my hammock knowledge on the young, moldable minds.
I started slow. Big tents lots of sleeping bags. Air mattresses. Large totes. As stuff broke( or as I felt I NEEDED things) I bought backpacking stuff. Out went the airmattress. And then I found hanging. So when I told my now 8yo we were hammock camping he got excited. Ok so we both were a little excited. As someone who never camped and was never in scouts I can honestly say it is why I am now a hanger.
