Hammocks Anonymous is kind of a reverse of all the other Anonymos groups in that we encourage the addiction. The 12 Step program here kinda goes:

    1. Get a hammock.
    2. Get a Tarp
    3. Get Dutch clips
    4. Get an Underquilt.
    5. Spend 5 hours, skipping lunch, watching Shug videos.
    6. Get Dutch clips for the underquilt
    7. Get a Top Quilt.
    8. Get Whoopies
    9. Get Dutch buckles.
    10. Get another hammock
    11. Get a Cuben tarp.
    12. Decide it is a hassle to switch suspensions. Order more whoopies
    13. ORder more Dutch Flyz.
    14. Get another set of Dutch Buckles
    15. Decide to try an adjustable ridge line. Get one.
    16. ORder "The Ultimate Hang"
    17. Get a winter Underquilt
    18. get a winter top quilt.
    19. Deny to your spouse, that you need an intervention, when they find you at 2:23 AM watching Shug videos.

    ----you get the picture.

    Thank you all for the support and encouragement. I bought another tarp today but I can justify it because its bigger than the one I got two whole weeks ago now I can have a porch on my hammock. I might have to skip a few steps because my wife already looks at me funny when I kiss her good night and head outside to sleep in my hammock (so the intervention might be sooner than later) but don't worry I'm sure ill come back to them!

    Hope you got doors on that tarp. I had to get my second tarp, in cuben, with doors. Then, some of my trips don't involve back packing, and see then there was this Superfly WITH doors and since I didn't worry about the weight on that one (It kept me dry a month ago while on the Buffalo National river.....when those storms that had like 14 tornado's in them hit Oklahoma.....and then moved over us in Arkansas.....)...
    so I got my third tarp.
    Then Caveman, yeah, this one is his fault....I saw those mini-line locks and HEY>.....I NEED a better way to secure the doors....On BOTH hammocks...so...
    Dang....ordered something else to play with....
