I live in Summerville, SC and do lots of camping on Capers Island here and have been hiking/camping around upstate SC (where I'm from) since I was 12. My friends all have hammocks and keep telling me I won't go back to ground-sleeping!
I have been doing a ton of reading here and just bought a ENO Singlenest. I will be doing my first hang in a couple weeks in Pisgah near the fish hatchery, then a backpacking trip on the A.T. later this year. I still haven't decided on a suspension system yet.
Anyway, I can't wait to try it out!
