    New and ready and rarin' to go

    Hello all! Thanks for the activation!

    I'm Brian, from Sudbury ON and have spent the last 20hrs, without sleep, after looking at the pictures from a buddy's outing this weekend. I started with "hammock tent" on Wikipedia and finally at about 3 or 4 this morning made my way and found this forum. I've been slowly compiling a list of products that work well for many people and am going to base my kit decisions on that! I then figured, hm I might try out all the crazy suspension mods right off the bat, but decided against it.

    I'm currently leaning towards a Warbonnet, as the Clark's are too pricey and I think I would rather not have an all in one unit so that I can tinker and add as I want. Can't wait to be more useful than just a question asker, but we'll see where the days take us. I've got a tarping question, but I'll save that for the appropriate section

    Thanks

    Brian

    There is indeed an Ontario Hang being planned at the moment. Although the trek from Sudbury on Bon Echo Provincial Park is getting on the long side, there really is no better people to learn about Hammock camping from.

    I would make sure you also have a firm grip on your wallet as getting new gear, while fun, gets to be spendy if you do things all at once.

    Welcome to the forum, Brian.

    Cheers
