I'm a new member of the forums, but have read hundreds of hours on the site over the last few years. Made my first DIY hammock from cleareace table fabric about two years ago. My daughters are now 5 and 7 and are very interested in the hammock camping experience as well as getting into backpacking. Now, I have the DIY bug bad. The wealth of knowledge and experience from this forum has been and will continue to be invaluable as I expand my hammock camping horizons. Thank you to all those members willing to take the time to share their experiences and give advice.
A few more backyard trials and we plan on camping at the Red River Gorge and then maybe a weekend backpack trip before it gets too cold.
