    Newbe from Kentucky

    I've never done any hammock camping and am looking to do so next year. I hope to get some good education concerning the best hammock to get. I plan on doing a lot of motorcycle riding and camping. Hammock camping looks to be just what I'm looking for.

    Welcome from Wisconsin! I've only been on the forums a few days myself. I recommend you watch Shug's how-to videos if you haven't seen them yet. Lots of great information in them.
    Here's a link: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=15516
    When I joined, these videos were recommended to me and I thoroughly enjoyed watching them and learning.
    Good luck!

    Welcome from Denver! This is a great place to learn more. Good luck in your search to find the right hammock. I'd recommend looking at Warbonnet, Wilderness Logics and Dream Hammocks.

    Welcome from a Kentucky transplant out in Colorado. You're going to love this forum. In fairly new myself and its easy to feel overwhelmed, but don't let it stop you. The folks on here are awesome!

    Thanks everyone. I'm looking forward to learning everything that I can. Finding the right equipment is first on my list since it is way to cold to do much of anything else. I will be checking out the links that you sent me jonny. I've already heard some new names here for hammocks. I'm fancying the WBBB though.

    Welcome to the trees from New England! Go to the video directory and play with the cloud tags. Great stuff there! Watch ALL of Shug's videos!

    Thanks everyone. I wonder if there is a post discussing everyone reason for choosing the hammock that they have. I know that there must be a question box some where on topics.
