Hey everybody. Long time lurker of hammockforums, first time poster. I've always loved hammocks. Practically lived in one on my friends porch in Brazil for 6 months.
But just got my first hammock for camping/hiking. I live here in NY, and Spring can't come soon enough! :-)
I got the ENO DN w the Atlas straps, the guardian bug net & the profly tarp. I know everyone here is big on whoopie slings, and I may try them down the road, but for now I went with the ENO Atlas straps cause they are poly & don't stretch like the nylon slap straps.
After reading alot on this forum, I went with the DN over the SN cause I'm 6'4" tall and weigh 230lbs and felt the DN would be best.
I plan to do a lot of Catskills and white mountain trips this spring and then head out west later this summer. Then overseas towards the end of the year with a long trip to New Zealand.
Looking forward to posting lots of pics and asking lots of questions here.
