    Hey! My first hang was on a 2' too short bedsheet as well. It sucked (YMMV), but not nearly as much as the ground . +1 on the Shug-love as well!

    Welcome to the forum. I look forward to hearing future adventures.
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock

    Thanks everyone, I've been learning as much about hammocks as possible. It's fun being like a kid again, just a sponge with information in every place I look on the forums here. Shug Whooooooo Buddy, just finished your tarp video for the second time.

    There is a fair amount of love for Shug here on the forum. Welcome to the club and its not and obsession its an uncurable addiction that requires lots of re-hab in the woods. Have fun making the hammock and tarps that appear to be in your future and please post pics of the completed projects.

    Hey .... I love me too!!!!!
    Just fooling around ......
    If anything I hope these lil' amateur videos inspire folks to just "get into it" and get outdoors. That is all.
    In a hammock .... even better.

    Whooooo Buddy)))) All Good in the Backwood Hood.

    Count me in on the "I blame Shug" bandwagon His video on Brandon's old site it was what pushed me over the edge. That and my back killing me! Hey Shug, did you ever check out The Wiyos??

    I think I technically found the forum first, but the first thread I opened was one that had a link to a Shug video. Ditto on staying up late watching the WBV collection. Very informative and fun.
    The bad news is, kinda like getting an old song in your head, I now find myself talking like Carl Childers more than I'd like. (Coffee makes me nervous when I drinks it, mm-hmm.)

    Welcome, from another noob.
