    Howdy from DFW!

    I've been poking around the site for around 6 months now, and decided to join a few months back. I'm a long time scout camper, and I've tried just about every combination of gear you could imagine.

    About 3 months ago I purchased my first hammock, a Clark NX-150 (I'm not too tall so decided to save the cash), and I'm sold!

    I can be found most weekends camping around the DFW area with my son's scout troop.

    This "hammocking" thing is GREAT!!!!!!

    Throkda, s240...sub-, 24 hour, overnighter.
    Go out in the afternoon, hike, hang, eat, sleep and return home in the morning. All in less than 24 hour time frame.
    A quick diversion, test gear, recharge the "adventure" batteries...

    Howdy! Good to have you along. I visit San Antonio every once in a while, and once in a while fly through DFW. Welcome to HF.
