    Hangin' out in Phoenix

    Hello. New guy from Phoenix, Az. checking in.

    First off want to apologize if I’m stepping on any toes with the login name. I’m “Stormcrow” on at least a half-dozen other forums (Hummer, Binder, off-road, knives, firearms, etc) and this is the first time I’ve actually seen where someone else actually used the name. Moderators feel free to adjust as necessary. I’m a lurker and occasional poster.

    Secondly, thanks to all of those that have contributed to the knowledge base here on the site. I’ve learned a ton in a short time and been able to successfully put it to practical use.

    Now my story – I was surfing the Hummer forum (early June?) and one of the guys mentioned spending the night in a Hennesy hammock during his off-road excursion. Always looking for ways to improve my camping/outdoor experience I started looking into it. It was pretty much down-hill from there.
    Good timing afforded me the opportunity to attend a hammock showing at the local REI put on by dejoha. I spent many hours researching and finally pulled the trigger on a WBBB DL 1.1 and Superfly. While waiting for it to be delivered (it didn’t take long at all, I was just anxious to try hanging) I couldn’t help but order a GT Ultralight and some Amsteel to play with.
    Fast forward to this past weekend (not to mention some Dutch Stingerz, no-tangle line, and shock cord) and I finally got to put it all to good use. A two-night hang in northern Arizona, backpacking in Chevelon Canyon, and am very happy with how it worked out.

    I always like when people post pics, so thought perhaps some of you all would enjoy these as well.


    This is technically my first real hang outside of my back yard. Due to bad traffic conditions we didn't get to the campground until about 1am.


    my buddy borrowed my extra hammock (GT with Whoopies I made) and got a cheapo blue tarp.





    The next night was able to spend a little more time and square it away a bit better

    Welcome from Indiana. Nice rigs.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Welcome to HF from the White Mountains. Glad to see another Arizonan come aboard here.
    You can be wet and miserable, or you can choose to just be wet.

    Just don't be surprised if people start asking you questions about quilts and tarps. Better yet, play it up! "Yes, this is Adam. I didn't receive that payment for your Incubator, would you mind sending it to my new paypal account..." Seriously though, if your gonna be confused with someone, you could do a lot worse than Adam.
    Great looking rig. Personally I'd hang that sidearm in the head end, you're gonna have to be a lot more flexible than me if you need to get to that thing in a hurry. Love Arizona, the White Mountains, and the Mogollon Rim. The valley aint bad either from about November through March. Wife's family is in Mesa, Gilbert, and Forest Lakes, we spend a lot of time down your way. Welcome to the forum from a neighbor to the north!

    And wisdom to know the difference."
