Hello from Kentucky!
Hello Hammock Forum! I've been a member of the forum for about 3 weeks now but wanted to wait to say hello until i finally got my hammock... Well i just got it in the mail today, a skeeter beeter pro and a Kelty tarp from REI.
The mail man finally showed up after 2 weeks of waiting and sure enough despite the fact we have had a drought in KY for almost all summer it is apparently over today an it rained all day long. Despite that fact I decide to set it up anyway, but the trees i scoped out last week were too close together so i had to find another spot. Well the 2nd spot i tried to hang it was infested with wasps who were none too happy to see me and i ended up getting stung 4 times for my efforts... Eventually i found a third spot and got the hammock up and laid down for a relaxing 5 minutes in a downpour! Anyway I'm still super excited to go on my first real trip and wanted to say hello to everyone.
Third times the charm as they say. Hang in there (no pun intended) your first real hang will be worth all the wait. Welcome to HF!
Yep, 3's a charm. Glad that you don't give up easy. By the way, Oklahoma got the rain 2 days ago, after 105 temps, cooled off for one day, then today was hot and humid. So, expect to be hot in a couple of days. I drank my iced tea in my hammock this afternoon, and tomorrow will add a sprig of mint for our new Kentuky member. Welcome!
