    Quick hello

    Hey guys, I joined a few days ago and have been really soaking in the wealth of information here. I am just starting to get back into backpacking after a few years, and am thrilled to not have to dwell on the ground any longer.
    I got a cheap byer of main hammock just to test the waters and am already planning on upgrading soon. Ya'll have me hooked so to speak. Thanks for the great site and information.

    welcome,, the bug will bite soon!!
    To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug.
