    Hello from Kansas

    Dear Hammock forum folks,
    My name is Ken. I am from the Manhattan, KS area. I am very inexperienced in hammock camping, but I hope to learn this new way of outdoor living. I would love to learn to hang in any season if anyone here could help me to enter the door and get me started. I have ordered a Henessy Expedition classic, 2QZQ are helping me to add zippers on both sides. I am looking forward to this new lifestyle and meeting new friends.
    My best,
    Ken

    They are hanging just west of Lawrence this weekend. I was supposed to go too BUT it was too cold for me last night and I am babysitting now.

    Ah well. Welcome to the board. Maybe we'll have to get something going around Buffalo mound. You know, the rest area west of Buffalo mound and east of Junktown has camping spots. Maybe we need to meet there sometime? Sometime when it's WARM. And then I want to get up to Indian Caves in the spring, that's up in the corner of iowa and nebr
