    New to Hanging

    Hello everyone

    I've been reading within this forum for a few weeks and have truly
    enjoyed every ones posts and learning about this great option to tent camping.

    I'm 53 years old with some bike injuries that now bother me when camping
    on the ground and lugging the gear but this opens the door again.

    My wife enjoys camping with me and our twin boys who are 15 and in their
    last year or so of scouts as they've almost made Eagle. This will allow me to
    share some of that time.

    After gleaning thru dozens of posts I did contact Brandon and got on the
    list for a Blackbird, I'm excited to give this a go but wanted to thank
    everyone for sharing and I'll tell ya I'm still full of Questions

    Welcome, PKT! Watch out for coconuts if you hang from palm trees.

    Congratulations on the Scouts and welcome to the Forum.
    You're going to like the Blackbird, an excellent first choice.
    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.

    Welcome aboard!
    I suffered a broken back, along w/ broken ribs back in 02. I sure was grateful to discover the hammock in early 05!!!
    Much better than a bed at home or a pad(s) on the trail for me!
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
