    Greetings from TX

    I've been lurking long enough that I figured I'd make my first post. I'm just north of Dallas in the Lewisville area.

    The amount of information on this website is overwhelming, to say the least. As a former employee of REI I've directed quite a few people here to get more in-depth info on hammock camping and backpacking, but I had never really sifted through all the information myself. After doing the research I'm now the proud owner of an ENO Doublenest (purchased a few weeks ago at Trail Days in Damascus, VA, and now upgraded to whoopie slings), a MacCat Deluxe tarp, and will soon have a Warbonnet Travel Net.

    I've been sleeping in the hammock in the backyard and can't wait to get back out to the trail next month and do some real backpacking with it!
