    noob from NJ

    Hi all,
    I am bundy71, and I am new to hammock camping.
    I have used my ENO DoubleNest on several trips so far, and I love it.
    I mainly camp with the Boy Scouts, as I am an ASM, my son is a scout.
    After waking up with our gear wet, or a sore back, in the tent, I bought my hammock.
    I swear I am not going back into a tent!
    I intend to try the DIY projects, I hope.
    If not I'll be buying from the suppliers I have found through HF.
    Any way, Hi everyone!

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    Thumbs up

    Glad to have you on board.

    I highly reccmd you take some time and watch our Shug's great series of videos that cover the basics and can really save you some time sorting through all the posts ... and give you some ideas and maybe some focused questions the rest of the group can help you with. Not to mention you can have a lot of family friendly chuckles and entertainment!

    WARNING: Will discuss Rhurbarb Strawberry Pie and Livermush at random.

    Thanks for the welcome everyone. I'll see if I can make that NJ hang KK. And I live on the Wal Mart end of town.
