    I know how you feel. I felt the same way when after about 20 years of refusing to go backpacking, my wife wanted to go. Then she also fell into hammocking after 10 years of swearing it would never work for her.

    Congrats.

    haha, I'm doin' it the opposite way, I'm doublin' my gear so I can have a set for my stepdad on our upcoming steelhead trip. He's a nancy in the woods but doesn't wanna listen to me about how comfy hammocks are.. I'll show him..

    Haha gotta love it when the wife finally excepts your passion. Mines pretty weird about it. "All you ever do is think about backpacking and hammocks", "how much for a tarp/quilt/hammock/etc?!?" Just yesterday I was talking about how I need a lighter big pack and she said "why don't you just buy one". It kind of freaked me out. Haha

    He's a big boy but the hammock I'm getting him is 7 feet long should last him a couple of years.
