RE: Hammock Camping Question from a "tightwad"
You can never have enough hammocks. I have three now, and plan to get five total by the summer. The reasons are simple - friends and kids. My kids need a place to hang when we hike together, and occasionally I can convince a friend to try by loaning them one. So far it is three Hennessy Hammocks, but I’m trying to get a Crazy Crib (as a part of BPGT) and am starting to figure the material to make a Speer Hammock. I guess it is like any tool, the right hammock for the job LOL.

Sorry Jodi, I missed the question. I'm in the middle of a majorTo unsubscribe from this group, send an email to:
project right now and have been speed reading the post the past few
I do have an original which is the first Hennessy. It is slightly
heavier than the ultralights and the fly is smaller by 3 inches on
all sides. However the fly is still big enough for most rain except
for extreme wind driven rain. I have (don't tell my kids, they
think I bought them for them)) 2 ultralight asym backpackers and I
have set them up and climbed in but I am over the weight limit for
them. So I am still using my original. I do belive the asyms should
be better in storms as the cut keeps more of the fly over where your
body lies. However if you can get an original for $49 I say go for
it. I gave around $80 for my original 2 years ago when it was on
sale at REI. Now back to my remodle project. sigh!
