I'm completely new to all this. I am on a quest to gear up for hiking and while I was looking for a pack/tent/bag/etc. someone mentioned hanging to me. I found the concept intriguing and have been looking around for more info and have found a wealth of it here.
So, here I am. I have never hung before and I don't personally know anyone who has. I would like to give it a try, but am still trying to find the best point of entry. I have looked at the Hennecy's and Warbonnet's online (if I buy one you guys have just about sold me on the blackbird), but the price tag is a bit high for a guy who has no idea if he is even going to like it. I have also thought about the DIY option, but I have never tried sewing and would have to start from scratch there too.
In any case, I'm here and I look forward to learning more from you folks.
EDIT: Oops, forgot to tell you a little about me.
I live in Bay Minette Alabama. I have a 2 yr old little boy and the most amazing wife in the world. I work in IT as the Software Development Manager for Baldwin County. I love the outdoors and have done some camping in the past, but just got started with hiking last year. Besides doing this for the pure enjoyment, I am hoping for hiking/camping to be something that I can do with my little boy as he grows.
