I used to camp when I was younger and would like to get back into it. I was hurt on the job and am now retired and would like to try hanging. I am a believer in buying good equipment that will last that is why I went with the clark nx250 hope I did right. I have not recieved it yet , hoping to do some cold weather camping. This forum is great lots of info, watched a bunch of shug's videos, looks like a great time. I have read the ultimate hang and many posts here and realize this can start to cost $.
