    Introduction

    Hello fellow hangers. My name is Kerry and I have been hanging for about three years now. I live in Tampa, Fl and frequent the parks and trails within about a 70 mile radius of my home. One day a few years ago, I was in the local Army surplus store and saw a mosquito hammock and I just had to try it. I have not set foot inside a tent since. I finally, this week, replaced that heavy hammock with a No-See-Um-No-More by Bliss. I canít wait to get out there and try my new toy.

    Since Iím in Florida, I camp year round. Some of you may be tough enough to handle those cold weather hangs up north, but not me. I am allergic to snow.  In fall and winter I back-country camp at J.B. Starkey, Withlacoochee River, and Hillsborough River parks. In the spring and summer, I have a secret spot on an island on Tampa Bay that overlooks the Gulf.

    I am excited to learn from all of you and possibly meet some other hangers out and about. I have never met anyone else who uses a hammock, but Iíve heard that Iím not the only one. As far as I know, this site could be an elaborate deception or I could be dreaming.
    I look forward to getting to know all of you.

    Welcome aboard, glad to have you!

    Enjoy everything the site has to offer! (Just don't look behind the green curtain)

    You should keep an eye out for any Hangs in your region where you can get to meet some other hammockampers in person and see some other rigs.
