Hello everyone! I figured I'd stop lingering in the shadows and introduce myself!
My experience with hanging is extremely limited, so I definitely consider myself a newbie. Besides hanging in the backyard hammock as a kid, the only other time was in Iraq, when I'd hang in the back of my truck... Much more comfortable that in seats or on the ground!
I just recently got into backpacking, only day hikes for now, but next season I hope to get out for a few days at a time. Having grown up in Boy Scouts, I know just how uncomfortable the ground can be, so I took a look into hammocks! There is a ton of information here, so I thank all the members who contribute to sharing their firsthand knowledge!
I'm not much good at diy projects, so I was looking into a Warbonnet, but my step father mentioned he had a hammock lying around, so I'll take a look at that before spending money. Hopefully it's workable, if not, I better start savin
