    You were right, but is there a cure?

    It's only been a little while since I got my first hammock (BB, Superfly and Yeti) but the sickness has begun. I picked up the BB and Superfly that was recently for sale here on the forum as my 'spare' set (sounds like a good reason...) and just picked up the UQ that Mule had for sale. Now I am sitting here in the living room dusting off the sewing machine, watching all of Ramblinrev's DIY videos to get ready to add some down I have to the quilt I just bought! This is not good. I think I just took a header down the slippery slope..............

    Yep......it's a problem......and no known cure

    ...but at least my therapist told me it is good that I recognize the fact I have a problem.....

    Sure, there is a cure: go to your back yard, set up a tent, sleep on the ground.

    This will cure you of ever wanting to go back to ground again.


    OH! My wife just pointed out that you wanted a cure for hammocking.
    Sorry, you are one of us now, no cure is avalable.

    You swallowed the red pill.
