    Hello from Arkansas

    A real noob here. Just received one of the Yukon Lightweight Travel Hammocks that was on sale the other day. I am going to change out the suspensions to whoopies and a Toggle system. I don't have a insulation system, or a tarp yet, but I have trees in the back yard. I'm going to start out slowly and on the cheap, add things, see how I like them and how they work, then maybe upgrade everything as I can. Been lurking around here for some time now, and watching Shug videos and have caught the hammock fever . Anyway, all of you seem to be great people and I'm glad I am taking the plunge. Hope I don't wear everyone out when I start asking questions!

    Welcome from Washington!

    Go easy at first by using pads & a blue tarp , but don't make the mistake of buying cheap gear & then upgrading over & over.

    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."
