    Hello from Alabama

    Well I have been lurking on the site for about a year and finally joined up recently. I have been hiking and camping most of my life but using tents and tarps. Bought my first hammock, (WBBB) and have only used it twice. Sure is better than sleeping on the ground. At 64 itís getting harder and harder to crawl out and get up from a tarp or tent on the ground. Anyway I am currently switching from straps to Woopie slings. And there is a wealth of information on this website, thank you all.

    Greetings from the Jersey Shore. I grew up in Alabama doing the tent thing, but I try to block it out of my memory.

    I mean tents, not Alabama. I still love Alabama; I just prefer to love it from a distance!

    Welcome to the site from Atlanta, GA. You will love the hammock compared to sleeping on the ground. You will not want to get out because it is such a sweet sleep.
