    Hammock n00b from MD

    Hey Guys and Gals!

    Just purchased my first 2 ENO DNs and did a relatively brief hang at a PA campground to christen the hammocks . I've been an outdoor enthusiast since I was old enough (about 6 I reckon) to hike the mountain land my family owned near the AT. I'm a large feller and I never thought a Hammock would be an option for me. I was really excited to find out how wrong I was. I'm ready to commence the next series of my adventures in comfort and style, not to mention losing a couple of pounds of outdated gear! Looking forward to meeting up and hangin' out!

    Thanks Guys! Looking forward to this new *ahem* addiction. I've always loved camping and this brings a fresh new perspective. Looking forward to not slipping off my thermarest or pitching a tent on what inevitably turns out to be a gravel pit.

    I'm 6'4" and about 265 so ground camping has always been leaning toward the uncomfy side. I was very pleased to see a 400 lb rating on my hammock!
