    Hello from VA

    Hey y'all! I just recently got into hammock camping and was watchin some of Shugs youtube vids, and he kept recommending hammockforums.net. So here i am! I just got a new 0-20 degree ascend mummy sleeping bag, a grand trunk single parachute hammock, and a closed cell foam pad. I am still trying to figure out how to rig a tarp. But thats why im here. I plan on learning a lot, as i did from shugs youtube vids for noobs haha he is a riot!!

    The Road goes ever on and on
    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can,
    Pursuing it with eager feet,
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say.

    Hi Stringbean...I'm a newbie here as well.

    Like you, I've been digging through the forums, watching video's, and I "think" I'm prepared for my first hang, but I have this nagging feeling that I might freeze my butt off that first night.
