    Howdy from KY

    I am new (again) to the site, but definitely not new to hangin' or hiking!! As a native Appalachian from near Roan Mtn TN, I've been hiking the mountains since I could walk.
    I started using hammocks during my Army career, but those old canvas jungle hammocks were just too heavy for AT hiking (or any long hikes), so after I retired from the Army and had time to hike more, I started investigating. After several tries, and lots of research, including this great site, I have been sleeping wonderfully in a Clark NX-150 for the last 4 years.
    Hanging has definitely been great, esp as I aged somehow along the way!!

    I use DIY straps with cinch buckles for suspension, and still tweak my overall package every trip. Someday, I will get it just the way I want it.. but then who knows!

    Welcome from Indiana!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
