    Smile New from Texas

    Just saying hi to introduce myself. Love to camp and hike, but has never used a hammock. Trying to find out if it is something I might like.

    Welcome! Many people try them and get hooked for at least a sunny afternoon after mowing the yard. You might try an inexpensive one to start with and read up on the proper way to get a good "sag" for a diagonal lay. There are some, like the Grand Trunk, which are under $20 to start.

    Cool. Hello from the DFW area. We are having a hike/hang at the end of the month. That would be a great opportunity to check out some others gear and get an idea of what's available. Lots of info here.

    Welcome to the forum, from Ohio. Start out by just whipping a crinkle taffeta tablecloth together. https://www.tableclothsfactory.com/ A quick search here on the forum will show you that many of us have been using them for almost a year now. Good luck and most importantly have fun with it.
