    Hello from North Carolina

    Hello all. I've been looking for a comfortable tent that packs down small enough to fit in the panniers of my dual sport bike and came across this site. Since even with pads and cots I can never get comfortable in a tent I wound up ordering a Hennessee Explorer Deluxe Zip with the larger fly which is scheduled to arrive next week. I'm pretty excited about sneaking in a couple weekend camping trips now. Also glad to see there's a pretty active community for all the questions I'll have once my package arrives.

    Welcome aboard from Matthews!

    I hope you'll like the new hammock and it works well for the bikepacking.

    You might want to consider spending the $10 & becoming a donating member.. the main forums are just for hammock talk, but the donating section has a few people on there talking about bikepacking, plus a bunch of other non-hammocking stuff.

    Come join us on one of these group hangs - it is a good group, plus you will learn a lot.

    Welcome from SC. A bicycle and a hammock the only way to hike.

    Can't wait to see the wife's reaction when I tell her I'm sleeping outside next weekend. Already have the perfect spot picked out.
