    The New Guy In N. Texas

    I may get the prize for the least experienced hammock camper on HF! I am not new to camping as I have 3 sons in Boy Scouts and am an Assistant Scout Master. However, I have NEVER camped in a hammock. I have been lurking the internet and watching hours of YouTube over the past year or so being a hammocker wannabe.

    Well, my Mother-in-Law (can you believe it?) got me a Hennessy Hammock Expedition Asym for Christmas and I can't wait to give it a try! I look forward to learning from all of you veteran hammock campers and posting my experiences as I work toward veteran status myself.

    Thanks for having me! I love an adventure!

    More Texas folk Welcome from the DFW area. You will find everything you could ever want to know here. It was a bit overwhelming to me at first, but it starts to make sense after applying it a time or two. Have fun.
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    Glad to have you here. I'm the Scoutmaster for Troop 360 in Granbury. I've just introduced my two sons (Eagle and First Class) to hammocking.

    Welcome from NJ and a Dad and Den Leader to a Cub Scout. Give your mother in law a big fat kiss. I know where you are coming from though my MiL is a seamstress and is teaching me how to use a thread injecter so i can make my own gear.
