    There is not a better forum than Hammock Forums on the world wide web! YMMV

    I like the guys on BackPackingLight as well. A lot of them live out west and I've flown out and done trips with them. It's a great group. I think your doing yourself a disservice to think the holy grail is in one spot for all perspectives.

    You are correct. This thread will more than likely become a Donating Member only thread. That doesn't happen at Backpackinglight and never will. The archives at BPL have all the info that is found here. BPL has a broad spectrum of info available to all viewers. They are the "primo" backpacking site. Hammock Forums is the "primo" hammock camping forum.

    I came over from practicalbackpacking.com. I find it to be an awesome resource for light/ultralight backpacking. Started digging around their hammock thread, sparked my curiosity about hanging and discovered this forum. Soon after coming over here I sold my ground setup (tarp & pad) and only hang now. Great backpacking-specific info here but I still head over there from time to time to see what hot topics are being discussed and to get the perspective of a different crowd.
