    This is my first time here

    Hello,

    My name is Ellis and I'm here because I have a problem. I used to go camping and I would sleep on the ground. Then I meet this guy and he tells me that he's my friend. He wants to "help" me out. He told me about this new thing. "Everyone is doing it," he said. He told me that this new "thing" was called hammock camping. I thought that this was great! I have a camping hammock. IMG_0706.jpg I go on a hiking trip with this "friend" and several other hammock campers. This is how I got started and its gone downhill ever since. I have since tried to get help, and I've recently learned that I'm what they call a Do-It-Yourselfer. I slink around the web trying to get my "fix" on what others have made. So far I've got a home made double layer based on Risk's Zzzhammock IMG_0698.jpg design with a diy web strap suspension, IMG_0700.jpg IMG_0702.jpg a poncho liner enroute for a diy underquilt, and I'm waiting for a sale on mosquito netting so I can do a bug net. My tarp is a recycled hex rain fly off an old backpacking tent. My wife is always angry because I'm asking her to sew stuff for me and my family just looks at me with pity in their eyes. I'm here because I have a problem and need help

    Not sure your fund a solution to the problem as much as help living with it.

    Welcome from MA. The DIY bug is the best.

    Step one is admiting you have the problem. Step two is coming to terms with the problem. And step three is realizing that we are like you here and you have come home. Welcome to the group.
    Where ever you go,
    There you are.

    Welcome from Irmo, SC.

    A whole mess of us are invading North Carolina for the Smoked Butt Hang in a few weeks, and then later we've got the Fall Sprawl going on at Santee State Park.

    Hope you can join us for some of our hangs and show off some of your DIY stuff, and see some other peoples kits to get ideas!

    In the meantime, feel free to ask all the questions you can think of, and if you're on Facebook look up Palmetto State Hangers.
