    Salutations from South Louisiana

    Hi there,

    Long time lurker here who finally took the plunge. For a long time I was envious of you hangers while I was grounded at 400+ lbs. Well, in the last few months I have dropped to 350 and have decided to take the high hanging path (since I now meet specs). I just received my new Grand Trunk SBP 2 days ago which I am pairing up with my trusty Noah's tarp 12.

    I also have a set of AHE whoopies and matching ridgeline on the way. Hey... If you're gonna do something you may as well do it right!

    I will get to test all my new gear in about 2 weeks and can hardly stand the wait. I will report my results following the trip.

    I look forward to seeing you guys around!

    If that hammock doesn't work out for you, there are plenty of vendors on this site that would be glad to make you a much stronger hammock.
    Welcome to the forum.
    Quality hammocks for an active lifestyle!
