Hello I'm Dennis from NJ I am a kayak sailing, fisherman and I have a ENO Double Nest Hammock. I have been practicing setting it up and taking it down. I recently purchased a Kellty Noahs Tarp 9'x9'. I'm looking forward to using the tarp. One thing I do not have is Bug Screen but I am in the market for one now. I may try a DIY to keep the cost down. With this setup, I may be able to stay outdoors longer and meet the best people along the way.
I have been invited to camp out for 7 days in July 2013 kayak sailing by day and hanging up a hammock along the way around The Great Peconic Bay in New York.
Last time I went camping with my friends, They had rented a double wide trailer with fireplace, microwave, stove, sink, bathroom, And tv. I had brought a tent and sleeping bag and they said I could sleep in a bed in the spare room. They even gave me clean sheets and a pillow. That is not camping in my book.
I have been educating myself with a lot of DIY and Hammock videos on youtube. It looks like hanging is the way to camp. I really like what I see, I wan't to be a hanger too.
I hope to educate myself more as I go through this forum and I want to meet you nice people along my journey. Thank you for letting me join you in my new adventure.
