Greetings from Northeast Ohio (NEO). I am new to hammock camping, and planning my first outing with my son the first weekend of May. I have several friends who have switched to hammocks from tents, and tried out their setups before making the leap. I do a lot of camping with my son's church youth group, and in Scouting, including several backpacking excursions. I hope to pick up tips from the community here and hopefully will be able to contribute also.
