Hello, I'm Josh. I live in New Braunfels, Tx and admit that I have been a tent camper all of my life. I went a gathering of fellow Bushcrafters and most of them were hanging in the trees, so I figured I would try it out. Lurked on this site some and found some cool plans for a DIY hammock stand and then made my way to the local sporting goods store and picked up a cheapy Moskito Hammock, MicroRope suspension system and a Kelty Tarp. Here are some pics of my First test hang.
The Stand:


The Hammock:


The Tarp line made from Braided 550 cord and a Figure 9 (Hard to see.)


And the Tarp:


The neighbors are gonna think I'm a little off when they see me camping in the backyard.LOL

Anyhow, see ya'll in the trees!!
