    Greetings from Malaysia

    Greetings and hello from sunny Malaysia.. I've been camping for the most part of 20 years and never tried to camp with a hammock before. But nowadays i no longer hike or backpack and mostly go car/truck camping. So instead of using camp cot and the hassle of hanging moskito nets and all, i tot i want to give hammock a try.

    whilst researching for what's out there, a thread in Bladeforums brought me here.. so here i am.. still clueless..

    Welcome! A couple hours on the forum will cure that cluelessness...watch out for information overload though. Fortunately this is a great community for asking questions and receiving excellent answers.

    I'd like to know that too. I spent some time there while on RR from Viet Nam. (a lifetime ago) I loved the time I spent there....it's a fascinating place. Of course I probably would have loved anyplace outside of Nam.
