    Hello from Franklin, TN!

    Hey guys! I'm glad to be a part of the forums. I have already learned so much from reading your postings, and I am excited to learn more and connect with the hammock community.

    I pretty much grew up in McLean, IL(near Bloomington), spent some time in Orlando, and now currently reside in the Nashville area, working as an audio engineer. I love Tennessee! This state has some amazing parks, and I am trying to hit as many as I can, as well as hitting some trails out of state. Since I started backpacking, I have been eager to get off the ground and up in a hammock. To pack so light and be so comfortable; I don't think that there is a better way.

    I just received my Warbonnet Blackbird and Big Mamajamba today, and the weekend cannot come soon enough! It came WAY earlier than expected, so many thanks to Brandon and crew!

    Happy Trails!
    Stubbs

    welcome to the group

    there is also a backpackers meetup group here in Nashville. Go to http://www.meetup.com/ and search for backpackers in Nashville

    There are a few hangers in that group also.

    Welcome

    I grew up in Smyrna and can vouch for Tn's great parks. I camped all over but enjoyed Fall Creek Falls the best.

    Welcome to the club.

    Let me give you another welcome to HF from Gadsden, AL. Don't forget to check out the Mid TN hang that will be happening next month at Merriwether Lewis Park. It is a great place to meet other hangers and check out all of the different rigs.

    Thumbs up

    Welcome from Nashville! Ewker's gonna make you work for it, but I'm gonna give it to you on a silver platter. Here's the link to Nashville Backpacker on meetup.com--
    Nashville Backpacker meetup group

    We just did a 5-mile hike at Radnor Lake this morning and are planning an 6-mile hike Sunday at Bearwaller Gap Trail (which should be posted soon). Got several over-nighters coming up, all posted on the Meetup group site.

    Also, someone mentioned Neo's annual Spring hang down at Meriwether Lewis National Monument on the Natchez Trace. Here's the link to that--

    Anyway, don't be shy. Jump right in.
