    Hello from a NW Indiana Noob

    I have been a tent camper for a long time. Canít sleep on the ground like I used to. My wife returned from Panama Rep. De Panama with a hammock made by her brother. Spent many a summer day relaxing in it when recently it hit me! (Yeah Iím kinda slow) So in my search for info on hiking, and hammock tents I stumbled across a web page by Risk. Then that led to Just Jeffís page, a Google search turned up Shugs vids, while extremely entertaining they were also very informative. Shugs youtube vids led me here where I have immersed my self in all the DIY stuff.

    Look forward to sharing my trials and tribs with you all. Looking forward to meeting members of the forum on the trails someday to.

    I'll second that, the worst night I've ever spent in a hammock is still better than any night I spent on the ground... minus a trip down to Hocking Hills senior year but that's a whole other story You'll be glad you made the change and the peeps around here are THE people to get you all squared away with whatever you want to know. Glad to have

    The ground got hard for me too! And it took me a while to have that "duh" moment.
    Haven't looked back! Welcome to the forum.

    Looks like Shug got another horse to the trough and he started drinking the water. Welcome Flying bobo. Shug is a humble individual, and he's down to earth, he has sparked a lot of interest with his video's and teaches us all new ways to hang or shown in video's how to use different gear in different configurations.
    He's like the forums spokesman, sorta,kinda,
