    Newbie here

    Signed up a long time ago and forgot all about this site until I watched some of Shug's videos on youtube. I usually tent camp but want to try hammock camping. I am going to make my hammock till I know I like using them.

    Enjoy your new obsession. It starts slow and then you take over the spare bedroom with gear. Welcome.
