I haven't had time to set it up but tomorrow I am gonna hang it up in my backyard. I just wanted to thank everyone here for all the time and effort they have put into all of the wonderful how to's, tips, videos and pictures here. Can't wait to hang!!
    Welcome to the forums! I also bought my first hammock off of RAW, another one of his NX-200's.
    Indeed, hide the wallet!!!
    I highly recommend looking into swapping out the suspension and adding a structural ridgeline. Worked out great for me.

    Thanks for the great welcome everyone. I set up my hammock today in my backyard. I was surprised how easy it set up. I liked the structural ridgeline RAW rigged up on it. It was very comfortable to lay in. It was about 45 degrees outside today. I put a sleeping pad and my sleeping bag in it just to see how it would feel. With the weathersheild up I actually got hot after about 5 minutes. I am definitely glad I got this hammock.Next on my long list of things to get is an under quilt. By the way, my wife doesn't like me coming to these forums lol.

    Yep, we've herd that other wives were worried about their husbands communicating & even going off to camp w/ these internet hammockers
    But then they met some of us, & things weren't near as bad as they had feared

    I like the signature. Were did that come from?
