    Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and new to camping in a hammock. I spent a few nights in my backyard in a hammock from Brazil and loved it. Now that I've started with hammocks, I can't wait to learn more. That's why I'm here! I've been reading many helpful threads already. It's really interesting how much there is to learn about hammocks!
    I don't own a real "camping" hammock myself yet, but I plan on getting a Grand Trunk Ultralight soon.

    Welcome from Denver. The ultralight is a solid choice, you should enjoy it. If you haven't already look up the videos from Shug here and/or on YouTube. They're great resources.

    Welcome. There is a lot to take in. It can be a bit overwhelming at first, but it will all start to make sense after a few nights out there in it

    The UL is a great hammock. Have fun!
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    Welcome from south Texas... There is a lot of information in here... Akin to drinking from a fire hose... Come in and have a sip...

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I just finished making a pair of whoopie slings so now I'm anxious to try them out. I love how the ends get tucked back into themselves and give them a "clean" look.

    Great job on the slings! They are super fun to make and look very finished at the end. Now you're officially hooked.

    That's a nice looking job. Welcome to the forum. Be sure and check out Shug's vids.
