    New to Hammock Forums

    Hey all,

    I've been hanging for about a year now and am just now getting around to posting something on this forum.

    I'm a college student and engineering intern from Huntsville, AL. I am an Eagle scout and have been backpacking for several years. Only recently have I got into hanging and I don't think I'll ever go ground again (unless I go back to Philmont, they don't allow hammocks). Along with starting to use a hammock I've gotten into lightweight to ultra lightweight backpacking.

    I hang in a Hennessy Ultralite Backpacker, standard. And I use a CCF pad and Marmot Pounder for insulation but am looking to upgrade soon.

    Just thought I'd say hello and introduce myself.

    Thanks for all the helpful info HF
