    Hello From High Desert California

    Hello Everyone.

    I came here to learn how camping hammocks have changed since the times I was a kid and have used heavy canvas and rope hammocks and lightweight pocket net hammocks as well as learning more about keeping suspended with lightweight covers over the sleeping area.

    Although I live in an area that does not really have any trees to suspend from, I am close enough to foothill areas within the nearby mountains with plenty of trees.

    I am also curious about DIY projects, such as lightweight self-contained suspension rigs if anyone knows how this might be accomplished.

    Currently, I am still shopping around for a decent, but inexpensive camping hammock that does not weigh down a pack too much.

    If anyone does not mind, I will have some questions for other members concerning products or even home-made equipment I might have in common with them.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this, and thank you for having me.

    Welcome Kier! I too came here wanting to learn more about hammocking. It was a bit overwhelming at first, but everyone here is super friendly and helpful. You've come to the right place.

    You come here to learn about hammocking, and it will soon lead to learning to stay warm, DIY everything, alcohol stoves, wood stoves.... I don't think it ever stops!
