    Howdy from South Florida!

    Just a quick hello to everybody here... I hope all of you ate way too much and have survived Black Friday.

    Just a little about me... I started hanging from trees about 5 years ago. And actually the reason why I got involved with hammock camping is I was doing a lot of kayak fishing.
    And there were many times the places I wanted to camp you couldn't put a tent or a sleeping bag down, because the ground was either wet or too rocky.

    And on top of that when you could find a campground they wanted an arm and a leg For the night because I had a kayak.

    Well needless to say I found Hennessy hammocks and I was in heaven.I've done many two and 3 weekers down on the Everglades.
    And when Wilma came through and took the top of my condo off, I took my kayak and hammock and lived on the river for a couple months until all was okay.
    I'm in South Florida so a lot of the stuff you guys talk about as far as cold weather camping is something I know very little about.

    But if you want to know about how to keep the skeeters from sucking every last drop of blood you have, well now that's something I know about.
    So again just a quick hello to say howdy and I hope to learn a whole bunch from you all.
    Mike

    Cool

    Thanks for the nice welcome guys!

    Wow it seems a lot of you are down this way...cool

    @JayS... Nope not in 1 million years. I was born and raised in Hawaii, lived in Arizona and Florida and the closest thing I get to freezing temperatures is when I open my freezer to get ice cubes

    @Chopper... Try the Oleta River in North Miami Beach... good fishing and lots of places to hang.
