Welcome from N. Calif. I'm about 90 NE of SF. I just passed thru your area on Sunday and Monday.
We're having a Hammock Hang in May if your interested. You can check out this link for info: N. Calif. Boggs Mt Hangout - May 10-12, 2013
Great way to meet other members and learn about how to hang in a variety of conditions from people who've been doing this for many years.
