I've been hanging out recently with a friend of mine (known as Kritter on this forum), who has got me into the unfortunate habit of trying to get into shape: thus the introduction to hiking and using a hammock to camp out with.

    At this time, I have 0 skills and 0 experience (outside of walking on trails). However, usually when I get into something, I like to really get into it. After perusing this site and others for the last couple of weeks, I am leaning towards a Warbonnet Blackbird Double Layer Hammock and a Molly Mac Gear IX UQ. I am still researching for a good/light/cheap TQ and Tarp. Please feel free to make suggestions or give me some additional ideas and considerations.

    Also, if you can think of anything else I could use or would be good to gain knowledge about, I would appreciate it; as Kritter would too, so I don’t keep pestering him.

    Thanks, and I look forward to learning from you all.
    Lived in Bellingham for about 4 years. Great place! Larrabee State Park would be a great place to hang. Enjoy!

    Iíd like to thank everyone for the warm welcome. I am glad to say that I have already ordered myself a Warbonnet Blackbird and Tarp. I am looking forward to those coming. Iíve read through numerous posts and tried a friendís out and was really happy with what I found. I am still on the search for a UQ, IQ, backpack, and just about every other survival thing I can think of, though thanks to you guys I have begun to get a good understanding of what those might be.

    I have encountered a lot of information on this site and have been impressedÖ and a bit overloaded. I am not usually much of a poster to sites, but I will do my best to let you guys know of my progress and ask any questions that I have; and be assured, I will be a frequent reader.

    Thanks Ozark Mac for your mention of Larrabee State Park. I have been hiking around there for the past couple of weeks and have really enjoyed it. I think it would be nice to find a spot around Pine and Cedar sometime for a one-night stay to test out my new equipment when it comes.

    Shadowmoss Ė I would really enjoy checking out some of your camping/hammocking equipment and will send you a message to set up a meet. Thank you for the offer.

    Thank you all for treating a newbie so well,

    ~Mindwalk
