    Hello From Texas

    Hello folks,
    school teacher who lives north of Houston. Spend a good amount of time in the Sam Houston National forest when time allows, but I have also hung in the Sierras and soon New Mexico.

    I have tried a variety of hammocks, but am sold on the new Hennessy Hammock Deep Jungle Asym. Combined with a Jacks R Better 10 x 11 cat tarp, I think this is the best set up I have used.

    Hopefully more to come later

    One more welcome from a Central Texas hanger!

    As mentioned above, there will be a thread forming soon for a 2nd Annual Texas Fall Hang. Once the temps hover around 100* in July or August, I'll kick that thread off as I dream about November temps and trees a few hours north of Houston.

    Don't let the "2nd Annual" mislead you though, that just refers to the "Fall" part. By a quick check of past Texas Hang threads and feeble memory there have been at least 9 or 10 group hangs of various sizes in the past 18 months.

    There is an active bunch of Texas Hangers from South Padre, Houston, East Texas, Austin, D/FW Metroplex and places in between. We even have some adopted brethren from OK and on occasion join our cousins in the hills of AR for a hang so don't be shy about jumping into the conversations and joining us somewhere in the trees.
