    Hello from Mobile, AL

    I'm a recent college grad looking to get back into outdoor activities, primarily camping. I used to be in the BSA my entire life, so I'm well familiar with camping already. I was looking to buy a new tent, but I came across hammocking and fell in love. I can't tell you guys how long I've looked for hammocks of this quality and structure when I was younger. I guess I just wasn't looking in the right places. I'm looking to get my first hammock soon, though I still can't quite decide. I would like something casual to hang out in the park with but then also to be able to take backpacking and camping with. for this it seems like a more modular setup like the ENO or Kammok would suit me, but I'm still looking for input

    Welcome from south Florida but I was raised a stone's throw from you in Pensacola. Happy graduation by the way!

    There are quite a few members from the LA area (Lower Alabama) and the Florida panhandle. I would suggest that you look in the "outings & trip planning" forum for a group event near you where you can see and try different hammocks. Trust me, we will all talk your ears off about our hammocks!

    I canít comment on an ENO or Kammok, because Iíve never seen one. I have a Skeeter Beater (should have ordered the Pro, and still might) and a Hennessy Expedition (it was a gift) that I keep as loaners because I feel that Iím about a foot too tall to lay comfortably in them. It would help others offer some suggestions if we knew if you are 4í 2 or 7í 9. Like MAD777 said, try to go to a hang out so that you can see what others have bought or made. There are two coming up soon.
