    greetings from scotland

    Hi Y'all,

    New member from Ayrshire, Scotland.

    Anyone else from around here?

    Just got my first hammock (Hennessy Expedition) after seeing my friend's Tenth Wonder (UK make) on our last camping trip.

    I must admit, this being the first hammock camping set-up I had seen, I was a little sceptical at first. But, upon waking up after sharing my tent with several tree roots, and hearing about my friend's 'comfiest night ever', I jumped on the hammockwagon pretty much straight away.

    Now I think I'm addicted and I haven't even used it yet.

    Spending most of my days off at the moment messing around with homemade stoves, planning first Hamping trip, and watching Shugemery on Youtube.

    Cheers

    Welcome to HF, I'm in Midlothian!

    I don't know what the hennessy stock suspension is like so not sure how much use the storm rings will be.

    Just did a bit more research and I don't think they are really needed. Folks are saying just use a shoelace. Will experiment when am out. Definitely seems no need to cut the rope anyway.

    I'm from Edinburgh, but moved here in 2011 to get my hands on all the best gear.
    Cheers.

    I enjoyed seeing a little bit of Scotland as a college student 35 yrs ago. Had lots of fun traveling with a Britrail pass and staying in youth hostels. Beautiful countryside! Saw lots of sheep. Think I spotted Nessie!
