    Hi, from Winston-Salem, NC

    Been a long time since I did any backpacking (about 30 years) and I've been getting a hankering to get back into it. Stumbled upon the idea of getting a hammock (was looking at a Eureka Spitfire, still might get one just in case) and have become obsessed with learning all things hammock. Already ordered a MacCat Deluxe tarp and am currently yo-yo'ing back and forth between a Hennessy DJ and a Blackbird 1.1 DL. Yeah, like just when I had decided on Monday to get the DJ, I go to the site to order only to find that the price has jumped up overnight. I think I may be ordering a Blackbird this week, but I am still stuck in analysis paralysis (don't be surprised if I ask some newbie type questions in the relative forum section).

    Anyway, I am slowly getting geared up and look forward to meeting some new internet friends on these here hammock forums.

    Welcome, And you've come to the right place. Warbonnet hammocks are excellent and so are Wilderness Logics and Tree to Tree Trail Gear. If you can get with some folks to try out a few before you buy. They're everywhere and love showing off their gear to new hangers! Just ask and you'll be surprised how helpful everyone is. Good Luck
