Hi all this is one of my first posts, so I appreciate your patience while I learn to squawk like the other geese (Isnít there a song that goes like this?). Get it - because geese are in the air like hammockers! What do you mean No? What do you mean strike one for the newbie?
Typically I would go through the usual processes, and start searching for relevant key words in attempt to filter through the immense repository of information we know as Hammock Forums, but I believe my situation to be atypical. Iím a taller guy at about 6í2, I tend to be a practical minded outdoorsman who pays attention to weight, and I live near Vancouver which is known for its maliciously relentless rain showers; but as my father said something in the vein of ďthe ducks like itĒ sort of like geese I suppose. What do you mean the geese metaphor is getting old? What do you mean strike two for the newbie?
What I gather from various sources is that hammock systems are often modular. If this is the case would experienced hammock campers such as many of you suggest that I shop for individual parts as I develop my sleep system? Or buy a hammock kit right off the bat such as a Hennessy and buy the specialized parts as I see specific needs develop. Iím pretty pleased with my over quilt which I use for tent camping mostly, but eventually Iíll need a tarp, and a goose down under quilt. Goose, maybe the geese thing is because Iím a Canuck Geese. What do you mean I have to leave the forum? What do you mean sorry isnít good enough?
Thanks for your warm welcome. I look forwards to learning and getting to know the folks of Hammock Forums.
Greeting from Canada
P.s. What is the plural usage for hammock users? Hangers? Hangies? All Strung Out? Saggers? Hammocompanions? Hammockers...Bacon is no laughing matter?
