    Hello from ATL

    Evening all, been lurking on here a long while, just thought I'd chime in and say hey and thanks for all the advice I've been able to glean from here as I transitioned to hanging in the woods from ground dwelling. I've been an avid backpacker for years, currently sleep in a Dutch netless 1.6 hexon, with HG incubator, burrow, and quest tarp. Main stomping grounds are the Cohutta Wilderness.

    Glad you came out of lurker mode, and welcome from a bit east of you near Lake Oconee.

    Cheers.

    Welcome from South Jersey. Be sure to make it to one of the fall group events in your area or even up our way!

    Welcome, and if you have the time to go, a hang is planned at Raven Cliffs Wilderness area for Halloween. Not a large group usually, but some super friendly folks from North Ga. and Northwest South Carolina, and occasionally from other states and places. You would be welcomed.
    If you prepare for failure you will probably succeed.

    Welcome to the forum from a musician who lived in Peachtree City and did many a gig in the ATL.

    Indeed, but just barely. I’m on the far west side of ATL, you?
