    Boulder bikepacker

    Hello all.

    New to hanging in an effort to shed extreme poundage in a bikepacking rig and LOVE the feeling of elevated, slight swing as I sleep. Looking to make friends and learn a lot of valuable information in the time to come.

    I second the Arrr! Welcome to the forums from 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."

    Arrr, ye have come to place fair and true!

    There isn't a huge difference between a light weight ground set up compared to a hammock set up but the major advantage is comfort. Lots of info to soak in so don't be afraid to ask.
    Don't let life get in the way of living.
