    Greeting from Maryland

    Hello Hangers!

    I am brand new to this forum and to Hammocks. I have enjoyed lazy summer days in a Kittyhawk Hammock but have never used one to camp in.

    I have been researching the various types and brands and enitially was leaning towards the Clark Ultra light until I came accross this forum and a few very humorous youtube videos by Shug. I have car camped, camper camped, tent camped and backpacked and enjoy hitting the AT every Memorial day weekend. This year will be an experiment.

    I just purchased a WBBB last night and look forward to hanging it for the first time and get in some prctice before my AT hike at the end of the month. I have had back problems since I was 12 or 13 so I was a little reluctant to buy a hammock but after reading so many reveiws from people in a similar situations have decided to take a gamble.

    Wish me luck and thank you all for such great info and suggestions.
    Cheers!

    Welcome, I am sure you will love your WBBB. Sleep tight in it and happy hanging.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Welcome to the forum and good luck with your Blackbird.

    Lots of people with bad backs here (and everywhere). A number of forum members sleep in hammocks full time because it alleviates their back problems. Hope it works for you as well.
