    Back at you

    Thanks all for the greetings!

    Angry Sparrow - thanks for the UL threads. A great place for me to start.

    To my fellow Michiganders - greetings! I hope we get to meet in the future. I'm in Grand Rapids.

    Gargoyle - cool gear. I'm about 20 miles down the road from you.

    Shug - I chose Canned Heat as a name because I was a huge fan "back in the day". Was just listening to them on Pandora when I had to come up with a name. Now about your videos, all I can say is "whoooo". I had to go for a hard bike ride to burn off the excess energy after watching. You oughta be in movies friend. Seriously, very very helpful for a newbie. A picture's worth a thousand words.

    I have a week long trip coming up in September that I hope is one of my last on the ground. So much info here on HF, a little mind boggling, but I know by next spring I will have it sorted out enough to make the purchase that suit my style of backpacking.

    Welcome from another Michiganian. I am south of K-zoo near the Indiana border. We have had some local hangs, would be a good opportunity for you to have a "see and say" session with gear. I am not a UL type as I paddle but being outdoors is something we all have in common. This place is a great resource. Read away!!!!!

    Welcome to the forums! Sounds like you had less than a great intro to hammock hanging. Spending some time here wil you get you straightened out and pointed in the right direction.

    Don't give up, the journey to finding the perfect set up is half the fun...and expense.

    Welcome aboard. This is a great community, and very helpful.
    Hopefully we'll have another hang this fall, and you can come out and play.
    Good luck,

    Looks like there is a "fall hang" brewing in the mitten:

    Michigan can be very fun. See you all out on the trail.
