    ALHikerGal,

    Glad that you found the Hammock Forums.

    Hanging offers more than a light pack. A hammock packs much smaller than a 2 man tent. It is cooler in the summer. They are less expensive.

    Best of all, U get to sleep more comfortably.

    Sounds like a good plan.

    I had been hoping to find someone (or several people) fairly close by that I could see and check out their "hangin' gear."
    No problem. Any time. Just shoot me a PM when you are headed this way. Actually, you would even be welcome to try it out on a trip. I actually have three hammocks and three underquilts plus two SPE's. I confess, Im a gearhead.

    We've talked about starting a 12 step program but it seems no one wants to quit.

    I was told I need a 12 stitch program for all my DIY and fabric buying habbits, whatever that means.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    First, Welcome to the forum ALHikerGal. I am also exploring the world of hammocking.

    Second, y'all repeat after me "I am powerless over making & buying gear and my bank account & gear / fabric storage area is unmanageable."

    I don't have a storage area, unless you consider under a coffee table storage.
