Greetings and thank you for such a great forum. I started backing as a teenager in the early 1970s. I have always slept on the ground and I often camp in temperatures where mosquitos are not such a problem. My preferred shelter is a DD Hammocks 3m x3m tarp in the plow point or Adirondack configuration. That is about to change. After watching countless YouTube videos on hammocks, I have decided to make a bridge hammock to get started. I'm off to study the DIY forum here and more.

Thank you
Gary aka Backpacker57
