    Ayeeee from Louisiana!!!

    Greetings everyone!

    Noob to the forums and hammock camping. Have been "camping" (roughing it in the woods with cheap gear/tents) for most of my life. Recently discovered the beauty and addiction of hammock camping. After sitting through hours of Shug's videos, and not-so-subliminal messages to join HF, here I am.

    Originally from South Louisiana (Baton Rouge area), but just moved to North Louisiana. It's still as hot, but the food is worse...

    Looking forward to meeting people and discussing our shared mental illness....

    Welcome from a displaced bayou dweller (grew up in Donaldsonville). I also spent 4 years at LaTech, so know about the food up North. Someone once said they should put North and South Dakota back together- And divide Louisiana, because that's really two separate worlds.

    Keep an eye out for the group hangs, I hear the Louisiana group does the food up right! You can read about the past hangs in the Hangouts and Camping and Trip Reports sections of the forums.

    Share your trips and pictures, we all like to see them.

    :
    Ain't that the sad truth?!?! At least yours is still a shorter drive than mine to pick up some fresh crab, oysters or bugs (and I have made that turn-around drive from Indy to get a bag of crawdads, some shrimp and some Boudin then head right back, too). Sometimes, the food is just worth the effort.

    Heya and welcome to HF!
    Oooh, shiney! What does THIS button do?
