    Greetings

    Hey everyone, just introducing myself. It's good to see all the information everyone freely shares. As for me, I am currently in a Hennessy and loving it. I served some time in the Army and certainly my fair share on nothing but a pad on the ground in a bivy bag. Hammocks are the way to go. Myself along with a couple other friends, also on the forums, go out when we can, but not as often as we would all like of course. I live in Washington, IN and look forward to meeting new people and sharing new ideas. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome to the HF ... and if you love your HH ... check out 2Q's zipper mode. You'll REALLY love it. Got it myself!

    I will add my opinion about the 2QZQ mod. I have already had one hammock done by them and my second is in their capable hands right now modding my primary hammock. Excellent quality.

    Other things for you to look into:
    - Under Quilts & Top Quilts (UQ & TQ); it will keep you warm without having to chase a pad all night. (I have 3 Quilts from JacksrBetter (JrB) that I love.
    - replacing the stock suspension; Watch the videos made by our own Grizz and take notes. I have swapped out my stock lines with Whoopie Slings, and cannot believe how much easier and LIGHTER the entire hammock is. (Opie does excellent work, check out his offerings)

    Don't get me started on stoves.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!
