    So Exhausted and I'm in trouble today

    I can't believe that I'm going to say this but, I read a great deal of articles on this here forum last night that I forgot to go to I am so exhausted this morning and I hope I don't fall asleep at work or any where's in between.

    Oh don't tell me I am hooked already into this hang stuff.
    Since I joined I have already purchased my second hammock and I wasn't happy with the ASYM Tarp that comes with the HH Expedition I purchased the Hexagon style to boot.

    I also found a video on The GrizzBeak and have bought two of them too. I went out the other day and picked up 2 mountain climbing biners. I also went and picked up My Blue Foam CCF Mat. Will the need to have stuff ever end It took me most of the morning to type this and I forgot to post it.

    It's an amazing concept and it turned my camping on the ground for many years to an elevated perspective....... go figure! Anyone else get hooked so easily?

    No, I don't think anyone else has been hooked that easy...you need to look into underquilts, oh and Top quilts.

    Looks like you haven't got a top quilt or an underquilt yet.

    Wait a minute-----you've got TWO hammocks now so you're going to need two of each.

    And another hammock of course.

    Ground cover---gonna need one for each hammock.

    'Bout 100 feet of Amsteel, 200 feet of dyneema and some glow line.



    And a thread injector so you can save money--------

    It took me a while to jump in - I'd read about it the first time several years ago. But, it took going on a trip earlier this year with someone who was hanging to get me really excited. Shortly after that trip, I jump all in. I now have... well, probably more than I really need. But, I'm loving it!

    When I was but a young hanger back in 2007, I took a job as the night clerk at a local hotel working on the weekends. I spent the vast majority of my nights there doing nothing but reading Hammock Forums; with a couple of nights spent reading a Walk In The Woods and waking-up the guests with my belly laughter.

    It is pretty sad when you are just sitting there hitting "New Posts" waiting for somebody, anybody, to post something. It was a great job to have during my grammar school of hammocking days. Got some really interesting stories out of that job too, but they are best saved for campfires.
    Trust nobody!

    I remember those nights very well when I first joined hammock forums!
    I'm a bit more disciplined now (about going to sleep, not about buying gear)!!
