    New Columbia, SC hanger

    Hello all!

    I've been reading through for a while now and even jumped in on a few post and just noticed the introduce yourself posting area. I live in Columbia , SC, actually closer to Irmo, and I'm pretty new to Hammock Camping. I had my first overnight hang last weekend at Lake Wateree and loved it!

    Like many of you I have a bad back and had to find a solution to tent camping and found a lot of fans to the hammock. Best idea ever!

    I'm active duty Army National Guard with 18 years total time - seven of those years were Marine Corps until it got shrunk up good back in '92. I love to talk about just about anything - especially if it involves camping, fishing, kayaking/canoeing, shooting.....well outdoors. I'm politically conservative but have many friends that are way left - hey I took an oath that says you're free to your opinion and love the fact that people take full advantage to exercise that right!

    So anyhow, I look forward to getting to know you guys and hanging out!

    welcome from upstate sc!
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Welcome from Gainesville, Florida and thank you for your service!

    I used to be a Beaver, a good old Beaver too,
    But now I've finished Beavering, I don't know what to do
    I'm growing old and feeble, and I can Beaver no more
    So I'm going to work my ticket if I can!
