I made a HUGE newby mistake today. Well actually, my wife did. I went to the REI that's about 50 miles from here. HUGE mistake! I've never been in one and I probably looked like an addict in a pharmacy. I ended up with a Black Diamond Orbit led mini lantern, carabiners and a pair of descending rings(they only had 2). Then after I left there I stopped in a store called Backwoods. It was about a block and a half away. It's just like REI without the bikes. Talked to a guy there that is a hammocker and he set me up with some tubular webbing and showed me how to rig the hammock with a carabiner through the suspension tunnel and one descending ring per side. Super helpful guys. My wife has created a monster. I'm just kinda glad it's far enough away I can't stop there after work!
