    I know I know a women in a hammock forum how much weird could i be? I have actually just got into hammock camping and I LOVE it!! And I am very new to the forum thing. So any advice or tips i could get would be GREAT! I use a eno single nest hammock with slap straps and no tarp at the moment cause they r $$ and I don't know how to make one.

    Re: I'm new! And a Girl

    Welcome to the forums from Scotland.

    There are quite a few women on here so you're not that weird, we don't discriminate as long as you like hammocks

    I never even knew forums like this existed until around a year ago... advice? Jump in, everyone is really nice here.

    There are loads of tutorials here on how to make tarps if that's what you wanna do, sometimes google search works better than the search function on the site try pasting this into google
    'site:hammockforums.net black cat tarp'

    Check out diy gear supply tutorials as well http://www.backwoodsdaydreamer.com/diy-guides/tarps/

    Ditto... Pick up a cheap poly tarp from Walmart to start, then save your change to upgrade...don't go the route of going for a cheap "good" tarp as they don't really exist. You can get a good quality tarp for around 80 - 90, the main draw back to the poly (blue) tarps is the weight and bulk but they definitely will keep you dry.

    Welcome to HF. You're in good company here. You can get by with a blue tarp until you save up for something nicer. Keep an eye on the for sale forum for deals. Guide Gear tarps are fairly inexpensive as well. You just missed a group hang in Wake Forest. Watch the trip planning/southeast forum for more group events. They're a great way to learn, make friends, and try out different hammocks.

    <<< Female!

    Welcome from MO!

    I've had been using the Wally World Blue tarps until a got a couple of Guide Gear Emergency Shelters. I don't know if they are still on sale, but you can try doing a search for the thread to get the promo code.
