    howdy ya'll

    greeting, just wanted to post a hello to the community. I just joined the forums a couple days ago and wow, what a wealth of info! A little background, i live in northern kentucky and try to get out on the trails as often as possible. We have some amazing samples of nature here, and i love bein out in it. I was turned onto hammock cqmping about a year or so ago by a couple guys i camped with. They had hennessy's and i had a tent. A backpacking tent that i was quite proud of...up until i witnessed the ease of set up the hammocks had. And thetear down time was just as fast. I fell in love with the design and soon was off to my local joann's to get me some ripstop n diy myself something sweet. Well, being without the internet i've had a steep learning curve, but a fun adventure in 'thread injecting'
    anyway, i'll post some pics of what i simply call 'prototype 1' when i get a chance. Thanks fer lookin!
