We have had 1100 new members join in the last 90 days. I want to let you all know, the interest turns into a hobby, that turns into a passion, that turns into an obsession, that turns into an addiction. You will start creating PayPal accounts your spouse does not know about, perhaps get a a P.O. Box so they don't see all the boxes and envelopes arrive, then you buy a scale that and start buying newer, lighter stuff, then you get into DIY gear, lighter stoves, pots, packs, and before you know it, you are cutting chop sticks in half... YOU ARE DOOMED!
However, Hammock Forums is your confessional and the mods will forgive you.
P.S. I forgot to mention, the first step in knowing you are addicted...no matter where you are...having dinner with a splendid mountain view, at a soccer field in Birmingham, driving to work, walking the dog, sitting in traffic, looking out the window as your airplane approaches the runway...you will be looking for two trees to hang your hammock!
