    NOOB here in N TX

    Just found out about this site. I got into this because I was tired of not sleeping well on my sons Boy Scout campouts. The hammock has greatly increased my enjoyment. Have taken my hammock on one 12 mile backpacking trip and another weekend campout with my sons troop and we are plotting another backpacking overniter here real soon. I have the Hennessey Explorer Deluxe Asym Zip with the Hex fly. I opted for the 300 lb rated set-up just for durability. Got a smokin deal on my son an Expedition model that he is going to be sending in to 2Q for a zipper add. We also have ordered some Amsteel Blue to make our own Whoopies to simplify our setup.

    Great job here. We love the Shug videos and are looking at making up some sort of pad stabilizing devices for our underinsulation. Mom thinks we are ou tof of minds. Little does she know that is exactly the way we like it.

    Welcome from south Texas... We just had a hang right before New years up in lake texoma area... There are hangs happening usually at least once a month from where your at... Stop by and say hello sometime... And welcome to the obsession, you won't stop with just 2, no one gets off that easy

    Welcome from the Mile High City. Hammocks are great when camping with scouts - they get super interested and start wanting their own!

    Welcome. I'm in the DFW area. Lots of Texas group hangs going on lately. If you get an opportunity, come check one out. It's a great chance to see all the things you "need" that you didn't even know you needed!

    Welcome and what the others said.
    Some nine of us tested cold weather gear (well......cold for Texas) on that 12/29&30/2012 hike/hang on Texoma. We saw low 30's in our hammocks and a forecast low of 18. Not Shug territory, but a good test of cold weather gear. Brute had to deal with ice on the lake while trying out his new filter.

    Howdy and welcome to the trees!

    +1 on the group hang comments. Great places to meet folks with similar interests, see a variety of gear and learn tons.
