David Shook, Gastonia, NC

For his set up, David chose a Deep Jungle XL with a Hex Rain fly, XL Bubble Pad, XXL Snake Skins and a set of Water Collectors.

A note from David:

Thank you so much. As I said on the phone, my fiftieth birthday is this month. What a birthday present. My wife and I will be married 30 years next September and plan to celebrate with a trip to Glacier National Park. Plans are to stay in a Forestry Service cabin and a lookout tower. Neither will have electricity or running water, but who needs those things when you are with your sweetheart in God's creation. My new Hennessy Hammock will make the trip with us, who wouldn't want to say they slept in a hammock in Montana.
I find as I grow older, I enjoy paddling trips more and backpacking less.  Who knows, the lighter weight of a hammock and sleeping up off the ground may get me back to backpacking more and more. I am very excited at the new trip possibilities this hammock will afford me. My new hammock will go camping in Pisgah National Forest, fly fishing at Wilson's Creek, paddling on the New River and at Congaree Swamp....just to name a few of the places I plan to "hang out". Honestly the possibilities afforded using a hammock are limitless.

A note from Tim:

I am an avid fan and frequent user of my Expedition Asym hammock.  Whether I’m using it in the backcountry during my rides or relaxing in the backyard, I love my hammock!  Last summer, when I rode the Washington BDR with a couple of friends, I introduced them to my hammock tent and told them they were crazy to sleep on the ground.  One particular night while setting up camp, a front passed through. The gusty winds proved challenging for my friends as they setup their “instant" tents.  I breezed through setting up my hammock.  Needless to say, my companions were duly impressed at how easy it was to setup and even more at how comfortable it was.  I looked forward to camp each night and relaxing in my hammock after riding all day.  Again, thank you for the opportunity to share with you my dream hammock setup.  I’m grateful for my great luck at winning!

I'll also be walking the West Highland Way in Scotland with some friends and brother, bike packing the Cami de Cavalls in Menorca, and maybe more bike packing in Spain. also some smaller trips here in UK in England, Wales and further North as warm ups. And some kayak touring with girlfriend and some friends which is something new for us, a different and exciting way to appreciate the outdoors! So lots to look forward to, and the lighter gear will be amazing! :) Maybe I'll ride up that hill next time! I'll also be able to introduce girlfriend to the joys of hammock camping, not with my new one though ;) Thankyou so much to Hennessy and especially Keltie for helping with the gear choices and answering all my questions, I've felt like a kid in a sweet shop with the golden ticket and can't wait to use it all!

Daniel Dunlap, Washington

After winning the December Gearmail drawing, I was given the chance to build my dream HH. My selection was geared toward a universal application in extreme wet, extreme cold, desert and temperate climates. I chose the Explorer Ultralight Zip with the Typhoon rain fly and a Super Shelter. Together with my hydrophobic goose down sleeping bag, I should be able to scale the cold and weather proofing up or down at will. I can't wait to get my package and test it out above 6000 feet on Mount Rainier this winter, then in the Hot Rain Forrest this Summer... and maybe even in the Mojave Desert this spring!

Thanks HH!
