    Welcome from MA!

    For a quick easy and full set up try Hennessy hammocks. They are good quality and come with everything you need beside insulation.
    Chase your dreams without fear or hesitation!

    Welcome, jbrown!

    You've come to the right place. Relatively new here myself and everyone has been so helpful.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    There is an abundance of information here. What will cost you the most is the underquilt for winter in NY.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    That's how I've decided to start hammocking too.
