    Talking Howdy for Babelfish5!

    Howdy!!

    I'm relatively new to the forum, but have been hammock camping for a short while. I've backpacked for years and have never been able to sleep on the ground comfortably. So, 2 years ago, I admitted I had a problem and took the 1st of 12 steps and bought a hammock. What a difference it's made.

    I've used Hammock Bliss in the past but went with ENO singlenest's and doublenest's recently. I'm about 260 lbs so, I need a hammock that can support a bit more weight than what most of the hammocks I see can support.

    I live in South East Texas and do plenty of backpacking all year round. It's great to be here.

    Welcome home, BabelFish5! It's good to have you aboard. Lookup the East Texas Hang postings. It's the 3rd weekend in March. I hope to see there.
    Handle every stressful situation like a dog. If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.
