    Greetings from Fresno

    Hello all,

    I have been backpacking for about 4 years and recently bought a jeep and have recently enjoyed off-roading (lots of car camping). Now, I want to backpack again. I bought a Hennessy Expedition A-Sym recently, getting ready to throw a Mod-2 at it.

    I bought the hammock to remedy the almost inevitable uncomfortable and cold nights sleep on a thermarest and a 30 degree. To get warmth, buddy up in a tent occasionally, only to find out that "every one of my friends sound like a buzz saw when sleeping. Screw that!! After learning from you all and youtube, I have realized the inevitable "financial and learning" curve that comes with the "hang" and I appreciate it. Still doing lots of research, and toiling over future warmth/weather upgrades.

    Greetings from Fresno, CA

    Craig

    When a friend snore, I will usually throw a stinky socks at him/her. Same goes for me when I snore. ....Welcome to HF!
    I'm not asleep... but that doesn't mean I'm awake.
