First off, it's a pleasure to be a "hanging" with you all! I'm going on a backpacking trip with my longtime buddies in the Sierras in less than 2 months. They mocked me when I told them I was going to be sleeping in a hammock. Their laughter will quickly turn to dumbfounded awe when I whip out my Ridge Runner and Cloudburst! I'm learning more every day since I've joined the forum. I hope to learn more and look forward to proselytizing the virtues of hammocking!
