I'm new to this forum and have met (electronically) and been helped by some of you already (thank you!). I'm starting my AT thru hike on March 15th and have decided on hammock as my sleep system thanks to Red Hat, who donated her HH Ultralight Backpacker Asym to me (wonderful pre-trail magic). I've since purchased a 3S Phoenix underquilt and OES Deluxe tarp.

Now I need practice setting up my hammock and tarp! Yes, I have no prior hammocking experience I was wondering if there are any Houstonians here on HF who would be willing to meet in person for some Hammock 101.
