I'm not too far away, up in the Missouri Ozarks. Used to live close to you, but I only get to Fayetteville about once a year these days. I'm way behind on trips I've promised to take with folks. I only know of two other hammock owners in my area, so I know how you feel. There's plenty of outdoorsy folks around your neck of the woods. Get another hammock and it'll be easier to find another hammocker to go along.
