    Noob from NC

    Been messin' with hammock camping for the last couple of years. got a simple ENO set up. Nothin' fancy. Long time mtb'er that goofs off with hiking/lightweight backpacking as a side endeavor in my precious spare time (which has become almost non-existent with two wild little boys ages 4 and 2).

    Here's some pics from past hangs:

    Lost Cove (NC) last year:


    South Mtn St Park/sawtooth camp site (NC) a couple years ago:


    Just picked up a ULA Ohm after watching Shug's vids. Just makes sense to me. It is a very well-constructed pack. Will be testing it out in Linville Gorge in about 10 days - looking forward to it!

    I joined the site b/c I'm really interested in the DIY stuff. I want to make my own tarp eventually.

    Welcome aboard, always glad to have another hanger, especially a Carolina hanger. There's a big group hang starting tomorrow at Linville Gorge, base camp near teh Hawksbill parking lot. Stop by if you get the chance. Glad you're here.

    Where ya at in NC? Charlotte here. Lots of NC hangers here!
