    Central Alabama introduction

    Hello, all. I'm new to hammock camping (one weekend campout, one weekend backpacking trip in the Conecuh National Forest, and one week at Boy Scout summer camp). I always had problems with my hips aching during the night when I slept on the ground. Never again!

    Looking forward to lurking and learning in the forum.
