    Hello From Minnesota! I'm definitely a newbie!

    Hello everyone! My name is Michael and I am very new to hammock camping, in fact I have never tried it.
    Well thats not entirely true. I was in Mexico in a tiny little Mayan village, where everybody sleeps in hammocks (seriously, no one owns a bed), I bought a hammock handmade by a little old Mayan lady. From that point on I fell in love with hammocks!
    When I stumbled upon Hammock Camping a few days ago (Thanks to Biophthera and Shuggidy Shug Shug Shug Emery!) I knew this was something I needed to do.
    SO, right now I'm in the process of making all of my own gear, so it might be a little while before I actually get out there.

    This forum has been so incredibly helpful! Thank you to everyone who has put up tutorials and advice, I can't thank you enough!

    What else can I say...

    I'm 25, I love to travel, lived in China for over a year (which is where I have done most of my backpacking), I love music and martial arts.
    If you have any advice you would like to impart, please do!
    I guess thats all.

    It(I) might not be the prettiest thing, however It(I'm) is quite functional.

    SON: Dad why do I have to make my bed? It is just going to get messed up again.
