    Hello from Central NJ

    Hi, I've been lurking for a few weeks while determining what kind of hammock to purchase and ended up buying a WBBB 1.1 double. I like backpacking and fly fishing and am hoping to meet people with similar interests that hang some weekends in the Kittatinny/Delaware Water Gap area. Being from Central NJ I'm also close to the Pinelands. Right now, I'm exploring better tarp options and UQs and looking forward to learning lots more here.

    And you will! Lots of friendly and knowledgeable folks here to help out. Glad you have decided to become one of them.

    Welcome to the forum, and hope to hear about your future adventures.
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock

    Welcome! We get lots of Jersey boys here.
    I hope that there's a Spring hang that we could all get together for. I think there is one this Winter in the Pinelands.

    Welcome to HF from Southern Maryland. The Delaware Water Gap is part of my old stomping grounds as a youth. I grew up in the Pocono Mountains and a majority of my family still lives there. Hanging and fly fishing opportunities abound in the area.

    Welcome from the northern half of the state.

    We have enough people in the area that a hang in the Delaware Water Gap area could be a good time.
