    I agree! I put a zipper on my ULBA and sewed up the slit, and it's like a whole new hammock! I replaced the suspension system and now I like the HH a whoooooole lot better!!!

    Well hey Shug!! Thanks for all of your in-depth videos and gear reviews. You've really helped me on a lot of issues. What you've given back to the camping community is priceless, and very appreciated.
    Hammocks are God's way of saying....."relax guy".

    Glad to see you here bro!!!
    Because you fall through the clouds if you try to lay on them, so the next best thing is a hammock.

    Greetings all.

    Just joined after some hardcore lurking (hanging around? sry).

    Moved to Denmark a year ago and managed to get out to Sweden quite a bit last year, since it's only a 45 minute train ride. Every time we went we were camping in beautiful forests - at the right time of year the leaf litter and moss make a fantastic mattress but the idea of a hammock started to make more and more sense, as I'd be able to camp year round without worrying about where to pitch and minimising the impact (of me on the environment and of stones in my back).

    I've been uuhming and aahing over whether or not to pick up something fairly inadequate was *this* close to ordering before I started looking at the alternatives. Over the last couple of days all the information provided on this forum and Youtube by Shugs and Pablo and everyone here had a huge effect on me. I am amazed at how much information and support can be found here. I'm also amazed by the guys who run OES and Warbonnet - special folks who work hard for what they love: and not for big money or kudos, but it seems to me out of a wish to share their rocking ideas with others. For one-man operations, they're really tearing it up. One can easily draw parallels with the open source software movement - like a kind of FreeHammock developers community. (If I've lost anyone, just ignore my geekery.)

    So, in short, I'm waiting on a WBBB 1.7 Double layer, a MacCat Deluxe and a beautiful clear Swedish winter night to reconnect with the deep knowledge... and when I do, it's probably going to be partly your fault.

    Cheers,
    Tim

    We don't mind that kind of blame around here.

    Thank Shug

    I had been staying in shelters on the AT but you never know if the shelter will be full when you get there. Don't want to sleep on the ground, don't like tents, then I saw Shug on YouTube and knew this was the way to go.

    let me start out by saying tents are the bane of my existence. its not that I mind sleeping on the ground, in fact I find roots in the back to be oddly comfortable. all that time and effort it takes to set up a tent, it just seems like a wast. so most of my time in the scouts I slept with just a good synthetic sleeping bag on the bare ground (eventually I got a bivy). even with a really good bag, and a really good bivy, one day you'll make a mistake, and wake up soaked to the gills and scrambling for the fire. I got lucky that only happened three out of 20 times, and all in the summer, witch is saying something for kentucky. anyway one day I was cruising the local surplus store looking for a way to improve my sleep system, and came across an old jungle hammock, complete with mosquito net and a pitiful rain cover, now it had a lot of flaws and eventually rotted through, but man what an awakening. I have since switched to a parahammoc, but other than that my system hasn't changed. takes longer to set up than just unrolling a sleeping bag, but its a lot easier to pick a sight.

    I read the SAS suvival handbook when i was 12 and made a knotted string hammock. It was not great, but it kept me off the Stinging nettles and the bug had bitten.
