    New from Columbus, OH

    Hey everybody. I've been reading a lot over the past couple months but this is the first time writing anything. Something about being in grad school has made me hesitant to write anything that isn't required. Anyway, I've been a backpacker for a long time and picked up an ENO doublenest with a gift card I got for Christmas after reading a few threads on here. Read some more and picked up a 12x12 Guide gear tarp. I then talked the wife into getting an ENO of her own with a little help from some of Shug's videos (thanks!). With all the new fun stuff, we gave it a try in February. Little chilly (mid 20s w/ some blowing snow) but survived and we are both now completely sold. Really thankful for all the great tips and ideas on here. Next project is DIY bugnet.

    Welcome. I'm in Delaware, Ohio and am new as well. I've been lurking for awhile and just recently joined after I picked up my hammock of choice.
