    Hello from Cincinnati

    I was a Boy Scout/Eagle Scout and am getting back into camping and backpacking after few years (Ok decades) away. Mostly propelled by my son who is really enjoying Scouting and loves being outdoors (as do his younger brothers). Love hiking and being outdoors, but the poor sleep was the worst about camping. As trying to research back, stumbled on hammock camping and then this site.

    Borrowing a friend's ENO, enjoyed napping, but not been able to sleep in it yet (only has a bug net and no tarp, having thunderstorms in area). I think that I am going to look to DIY my first hammock (and probably second right away as my son is very interested too). Got out my mother's sewing machine and getting myself acquainted with it.

    Already been lurking a bit, so getting close to finalizing what I want to do. Will post the questions in DIY part.

    Welcome from Gallipolis, Ohio. Though I haven't made it to one yet, there are several Hangs in the state every month.

    Welcome neighbor!
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
    PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.

    Welcome to the forums from next door Indiana!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
