I stumbled on to hammock camping on YouTube. I was looking at videos on alcohol stoves and that is where I saw Shug and one of his brilliant videos. This led me to his videos on hammocks and that to videos by others.

I've ordered a hammock and tarp from Warbonnet and they are waiting at my house for my return. I cant wait to get it set up and start testing my gear prior to an upcoming trip to the Smokey Mountains.

I'm going to need a portable setup to hang in my back yard as my trees are way too far apart to hang between them. Any suggestions on non-permanent stand for one end would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking forward to this new chapter in my camping adventures. I'm sure I will find considerable help here on this forum.
