    Another hey ya'll from GA

    Hi all. Noob hanger here. I have been lurking here for a while and thought I would say hello. I have mainly been an occasional car camper and ground dweller up until now. I picked up a camping hammock (hammock bliss double) on a whim a couple of years ago. I would take it with me on car camping trips and usually just lounge in it during the day and sleep in a tent on an air mattress. I didn't think I could get comfortable enough in the hammock to sleep. Over memorial day, I slept in it out of necessity. There was a big group of us camping and there was just no more room to pitch a tent, so I hung my hammock over a brush pile and to my surprise once I found the "sweet spot" in this hammock I was able to sleep like a baby. Only problem was I did discover CBS but it wasn't too bad this time of year.

    That got me investigating the complete hammock setups, and let me to purchase a HH Exped. I have a few nights in the back yard, and so far I am really loving this hammock. I am interested in moving towards more primitive, lightweight camping (away from the RV's!) and I think this is a good step in that direction.

    I plan to ask lots of silly questions...so I thought it would be polite to introduce myself first!

    Hello from another Woodstock, GA resident. Lots of great info and inspiration here on HF.
    Hammocking, car camping, backpacking, kayaking, and mountain biking. Getting in touch with nature is getting expensive. Good thing I can DIY!
