I started backpacking again a couple of years ago. A friend told me about BackpackingLight, and I signed up there and started trimming my backpacking weight. I bought a bunch of new, lightweight stuff to see what would work for me. Then someone mentioned hammocking. It wasn't exactly UL, but on a lark I decided to go ahead and buy one to try it out (a WBBB). Wouldn't you know, I sold a bunch of that UL stuff without ever having used some of it. I still do ground backpacking, but most of my trips are with my hammock. I simply sleep much better hanging!
