15473Re: [Hammock Camping] Little Help From The HH Pros!
- Aug 23, 2006Hello Randal, and welcome to the forum.
I must apologize, I have been off the board for a
couple of weeks, so I am sorry this is late getting to
you, but I might be able to offer a bit of help. I
too am from AZ, the Arrowhead section of Phoenix to be
precise, and own a pair of Hennessy's. One is the
biggest, the Safari Model with the stock (2lb) Hex
fly. The other is an Explorer model, though I don't
recall if the ultralight version was out when I
ordered it. In any case though, I would be happy to
get together so that you can try them out in person.
Heck, I am always looking for local people to camp
with and would even be up for a weekend overnighter if
schedules could be worked out. Just let me know if
you are interested and we can go from there!
