    New from Philly

    Hello all,

    I've been lurking for a few months after a friend gave me the idea to try hammock camping instead of tent camping. I went out and bought a ENO SN and Kelty Noah 9. Since then I've upgraded to a DN. Recently I purchased a set of whoopie slings and SRL from Arrowhead and am waiting to get them in. Just last night I purchased materials from DIY Gear Supply to build my own bug net to prepare me for the summer months.

    By day I'm a software developer and on the weekends I enjoy backpacking.

    Thanks to everyone on here that have blazed the trail and made hammocking as enjoyable as it is today. I've learned a lot so far and look forward to learning much more.

    Experts are the ones who think they know everything. Geniuses are the ones who know they don't.

    Gather round your hearts the tinder,
    lay the oak and pine together,
    kindle all that is within you with a warm and cheerful spirit.
