Hi guys and gals,
Wow, what an awesome forum. I have been trolling here for over a year and finely decided to join in the great discussions on hanging and equipment.

A little about me.
Retired Mechanical Engineer (aerospace industry)
Born in Ohio, spent most of my childhood in Al and Fl (NASA Brat) kinda like an army brat. Moved to Denver CO @ 27 and have lived here every since. I'm 57 now.

Been backpacking since Boy Scouts. Camping in Alabama is quite buggy so I started hanging at a very young age. Got my first Army jungle hammock in 1968 from a returning Vietnam Vet and have been hanging ever since.

Here's a shot of me hanging 35 years ago in the Bob Marshall Wilderness area in Montana
