    Red face Hello from Michigan!

    I am a total newbie! I do not even have a hammock yet, but my 17 year old is getting into it and I thought if I did too, it would be a great way to spend time together!

    Welcome from Battle Creek. Its a little ways out yet, but keep an eye out for the Michigan Fall Hang, lots of fun and you can see lots of different rigs in action.
    Good luck,

    Welcome to the forums from Clarkston. I was just over in Whitehall this past Monday. That side of the state is beautiful. Come out to a hang sometime and you'll get the chance to see lots of different gear.

    Spend a few days a year in Duck Lake, a great place to hang.
