    New guy checking in

    Hey everyone!

    My name is John and I'm a long time lurker and even registered a while back but never got around to introducing myself (slacker......) I'm checking in from the upstate of South Carolina and can't wait for the weather to cool down so my hammock is tolerable....

    Thanks to all the wonderful people on the forum who have shared their amazing knowledge!

    Here's a quick picture of my current setup just so we have a base of reference from where I'm starting from -

    It's an ENO doublenet with whoppie slings and a whoppie sling ridgeline and a Hammock Bliss bug net. Hung above it is a Wal Mart special on a continuous ridgeline modeled after the one Opie designed.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. I forgot that my wife was having a yard sale the other morning. I woke to people lining the street as I am climbing out of the hammock in my underwear.
