    Hello from Central Louisiana

    I stumbled on the Hennesy Hammock site when my youngest son (12) and i were getting ready for his summer scout trip to Chattanooga, TN. I aquired a Scout and an Expedition Asym and all i can say is WOW!
    Now that i have actually spent a week in one, sleeping EXTREMELY well, i will probably never "go to ground again". I'm also wondering why it's not more popular here in Louisiana. My ONLY complaint is that it was a little hot, but then again it was hot EVERYWHERE. I absolutely LOVE being packed up and ready to roll a full 30 minutes before everyone else was through brealing down their tents.
    I have 2 other sons (17 and 14) and am working on getting them each a hammock and we will hit the woods big time this fall.
    (looking into UQ's and OQ's and all the DIY stuff on here has me biting my nails in anticipation of fall)

    Haven,

    I was just at Lake Bruin but did not get a chance to sling the hammock. I was too busy fishing. Headed on down to Alexandria from there for a show and then back to TN yesterday.

    Can't wait to see some pics of your hammocks and get some of mine in the state I consider to be my second home.
