Hello. My name's john.
I have been hammock camping since I was 17 now currently 19. maybe not as long as some of the folks on here, but I know a thing or two. Mainly my camping is between Ocala, random parts of Osceola county [where I live] and that's pretty much it. Normally I just camp around locally. So as you can tell by now, I'm from Florida, born and raised here. I traveled with my family as a kid all up and down the east coast, never got to go to the midwest or west yet. Maybe some day!
I currently have the Skeeter Beeter Pro by Grand Trunk my second one actually. As the seam ripped on the bag of my original bought one. I emailed the company asking for a replacement bag. And they just sent me a whole new hammock! so technically I have 2, just one with a ripped bag that I sewed up and currently still using because the other one smells funny [like a factory] and I let the girlfriend use it! [as she doesn't mind the smell.. it gives me a headache!]
Only thing about the skeeter beeter pro.. Is it doesn't "beet" the "skeeters" aka the devils bugs of florida - Mosquitoes! they always bite me through the hammock, now I have solved the issue with a big bulky "bed pad" that makes your back sweat. and sometimes moves around. So that's why I joined a forum. To get info [I'll be using the search function before asking questions.. not my first forum rodeo!]
Yup, I'm also here for advice on tarps and what one's gonna keep me - and my hammock, the dry-ist!
Yup that's all I got right now..
