    Aloha from the "Aloha State"

    Greetings to all from a long time hammock lover but new to the idea of hammock camping and DIY!

    I have been lurking here for a bit and love the wealth of information!

    As a kid, my first hammock was a woven Mayan hammock and I remember loving it.

    A few years back I was traveling in Cape Cod and bought a hammock in a bag and thought it was the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    Now I have both a Hammock Bliss Double and a Triple with DIY treehuggers and steel descending rings, and a net cocoon . I am experimenting with amsteel blue and have made 2 continuous loops, a few soft shackles and next will tacke a couple of whoopie slings.

    I have yet to take everything out for an overnight, but hope to soon.

    I am looking forward to lots of exploring.

    Welcome from central Texas.
    We are now ready to start our way down the Great Unknown.We are three quarters of a mile in the depth of the earth.We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknow river yet to explore.What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls rise over the river, we know not. Ah, well! We may conjecture many things. The men talk as cheerfully as ever; jests are bandied about freely this morning; but to me the cheer is somber and the jests are ghastly. Powell 1869
