Hey everyone,

Good to be on the Forum! My name is Cogneato, and I'm a new hanger! Just recently purchased a WarBonnet Blackbird Hammock for my PCT hike, and already I've fallen in love with it. Learning about hammocks and tarps has been an exhilarating outdoors experience and I have found a new passion in discovering what the wilderness has to offer me. I'm looking forward to talking with everyone about all the cool things you can do with hammocks! I'll try to post as much as I can and keep the forum updated on the thru-hike and preparations. Keep Hangin'!

I've already looked around and found lots of great information. Everyone here is really nice too, which is a relief. I love my Warbonnet, it's so incredible. I'm a new hammock enthusiast :D!

Hello! Great to know more people in Texas are hangers! The Lake Georgetown idea sounds amazing. It would be awesome to get away from my job for a little while.

One more "welcome" your way from Aggieland.

It looks like the numbers have grown to where, in addition to the Lake Georgetown gig, we need to plan another big Texas Group Hang.

Yea i completely agree. There is a lot for me to learn in the next three months, so the more I get out and test my gear, the better I'll be. A big group Texas hang would be great. And unfortunately, I'm from Bear country.....if you know what i mean...Uncle. I myself am not a Bear though.

Ya'll are nuts! How do you cook without Lone Star? I mean, there's always Pearl, but I've not been that desperate yet.

Is beer considered "food"
and how does that fit into the recent poll of food in the hammock?

It is on the AT. Heard the discussion many times on the merits of beer as food.
However, I can't remember a single occasion that there was enough left at camp that somebody made the decision to bear bag it, so maybe a little thread drift. ;)

No problems with thread drifts haha. I think it's great that everyone here is really nice, and there are lots of hangers in Texas. We'll definitely have to do a Texas Group hang before April!

I'm really happy with my Warbonnet. I need to get the Yeti or some other equally good UQ before I start any cold night camping. I do have a tarp to keep me shielded from the elements though.

Shiner all the way! Love it. Bock is a great Texas beer. And I would consider it a food, because my friend Randall lived off Shiner while sleeping in his truck...for like a week that's all he drank. He's doin' fine now. Had a gash in his head for a little while though......
