    Your just getting started! I went from tents to bluff shelters to Hammocks! Hammocks is so much better! But I notice the wife's, so you guys will be using tents or buying more hammocks! Welcome to the hammock world!

    I may give my wife the HH Expedition and buy an Explorer Ultralite. I think I am too tall for the Expedition.

    I agree with this guy! Blackbird! It's the way to go! You get the zipper side entry the footbox and the shelf, plus lots better tree straps . This means alot! Just read more or show up this weekend and check out all the set ups! Thomas

    Civic, what a great trip report and photos! You even had pretty ladies with you to improve the overall scenery! That is a great benefit that your wives can enjoy this activity with you.

    I think you will find the UL Explorer even more comfortable, just because it is bigger. That is the one I have, and the one I started with several years ago. I still like it a lot. But- as I have sevral netted hammocks if needed- I recently cut the net off. Plus I can use my WB separate net on it if needed. I can only say that it seems even better now, and using it with the Super Shelter is greatly simplified, as I can easily reach under the hammock to make adjustments and check loft, etc. The only real complaints I ever had with the Exp were related to the net: couldn't reach out of the hammock, and often in my face. But no more!

    Did you have many mosquitoes on this trip?

    PS: Of course, a BB is a great way to go also, I'm sure you would really like it! But I do like to use my SS from time to time ( just call me weird! ), so that means my Exp. But, no problem, I think it is quite comfortable!

    Where in AL are you located?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Thanks. I also am glad they can come with us sometimes. Some trips (ex: bad weather, really cold) they pass on, but overall my wife loves it. She is just super cold natured.

    No mosquitoes on this trip.

    I am in Montgomery, AL !

    I may just get the HH Explorer Ultralite. I love the all-in-one design, and the snakeskins !!!

    I am in Tupelo, MS but I grew up mainly in Columbus, GA not far from you! Snake Skins(SS) are great, as is the Super Shelter(SS), at least for me!
