    Lightbulb Hello to all!

    I am loving this site. I have been camping since I can remember. I live in Charleston, SC. I camp all over this beautiful state. A little over a year ago I got a ENO double nest for my birthday. I had no real intentions of really sleeping in it, just relaxing in the backyard. But a friend of mine said if he could help it he only slept in a hammock when camping. So the very next camping trip I took my hammock and a fly from my 3 man tent. I slept like a baby in pouring rain and howling wind the first night (dry by the way). The second night it was freakin' cold, but woke up feeling like a champ. Aside from not really knowing what I was doing as far as suspension and tarp rigging went, I became a hammock camper.

    I never knew that I would find such a wealth of knowledge on this site.

    Some friends and I are taking trip to Pisgah on Friday. A few of us are hangers and will be trying out some new suspension (whoopies) and ridgeline ideas.

    More and more of us joining from the coastal region every day. Soon we're going to have to start organizing an annual hang.

    We are going to the fish hatchery. There are a couple of big sites not far from the parking area. Great place for breaking in some guys who don't really camp much.

    Welcome to the best Forum on the net!!!

    Anywhere in Pisgah is wonderful. You'll be right by Looking Glass Rock.
    That's a hike on my to-do list for this year.

    Let us all know how it went!
