    Newbie

    Hi everybody, I'm from Campobello, SC. Thats just west of Spartanburg, just 5 miles from NC.
    I drive a big truck for a living along with my wife/co-driver/secretary/boss.
    I use to do a lot of hiking and sleeping on the ground but I've done got to old for that. I saw one of Shug's videos and that did it.
    I noticed there's quite a few guys on here close by. I can't wait to go on one of the hangs and see how the pros do it.

    I've seen pics of hammocks hung from jeeps and tanks- finding a spot on a big rig should not be difficult.
    Just a thought, KM
