Welcome to the forums. Once you discover the ease and comfort of hanging in trees you will never want to go to the ground again.

thanks for the welcome everyone, i did manage to get out yesterday if only briefly in the middle of the day. i just had to have a go at stringing that hammock up, not having tried one before, if only to give me an idea of what my next step will be. i think the next thing i gotta sort out is a suspension system, i'm probably gonna try and rig something up with some webbing and rings, i'm gonna have a good read through these forums first for some idea's.
i was a bit wary as this was my first attempt, but it did stay up and i didn't fall out much to the wife's disapointment, she had the camera in hand just in case lol! we both tried it and could not get over how comfortable it actually was, i've attached a couple of pics, and please dont all laugh at once, as it was my first attempt lol!
i have to say i can see so many more options opening up as regards camping spots as i will no longer have to find a nice level piece of ground and living in the valleys and surrounded by wooded mountains this will be a great advantage, i'll keep you posted.
