    Alaska Hammocker

    Greetings from Alaska's rainforest.

    I've been hammocking for three summers now, and lurking here for almost as long. I began with a grand trunk travel hammock and caught the bug. I've since upgraded to a Eno Doublenest, Kammok Roo, and even picked up a Fatboy headdemock for at home hanging. during which I've switched suspension more than I can count, always chasing the simplest and lightest setup for my needs.

    New for this season was a Warbonnet Blackbird 1.7 double (the hammockers Cadillac), and a DIY gathered end out of ripstop nylon.

    I look forward to contributing on this forum as I expand my insatiable gear addiction.

    Hang low, hang lazy.

    Welcome aboard Mitch. Not being a member here is like trying to keep up with a speedboat in a kayak. Welcome to the madness...

    Oh and I like the hang low hang lazy phrase. Cool.
