      Hi there, keep us posted on how you're liking it.

      I get a very comfortable sleep in my hammock but I have not become a total
      convert to hammock camping. There are advantages, for sure, but I'm not positive
      they've outweighed those of a lightweight tent. I do like the versatility of the
      rainfly but I think I might be farther ahead just to carry that or a tarp and go
      to tarping. Except then there's bugs, both flying and crawling. Being up off the
      ground has definite pluses.

      hello everyone,
      i'm new to both this forum and hammocking & at last i'm posting this from
      mid-air in the backyard where i am spending my first night (13C/55F, no wind).
      it's a new sensation & i'll need some time to get used to it, but i like it so
      the only problem was that the tarp immediately developed a failure - a hook sewn
      from the same ripstop material got torn as i was tightening, but it was not a
      show-stopper :-)
