"ENJOY THE WILD"
Welcome Campfire! I am a newbie around here too. I have hung exactly twice. I a very too small 'relax style' hammock. And it 'took' almost immediately. Now I am scrounging for better hammocks, lighter tarps, and alcohol stoves (although I am not supposed to take these on Boy Scout Trips).
And yes, Shug is the reason I am here also. Scarey the amount of control he has over people when they watch his videos. Wonder what would happen if we played his vids backwards. HHHMMM.
Help a Boy Scout Troop in your area - become a mentor.
God created Firemen so cops would have heros.
Oh now, you can't put ALL of the blame on Shug. Maybe 70 - 80% of it, but some blame has to go to Grizz, Ramblin Rev, Knotty, Just Jeff, SGT Rock and a mess of other pillars of this nuthouse.

don't forget Dutch, the maker of all things lightweight and useful!
Yep, I fall in that line of ignition by Shug! I've been hanging for years but Your entertaining videos created a passion that has been released like a sailor in Port. Thanks Shug!
Sarcasm aside I did know Shug via his You Tube channel along with medicjimr (can't wait), usframe & Ggreenvideos. Seeing those fellas show there rigs helped spur me into trying a different set up for my outdoor adventures.
I look forward to reading what grizz, justjeff & the others mentioned talk about on here. As they have traveled much further on this hammocking path than I have.
B.T.W. I just tried my first test hang last night & I have some dialing in to do. I did use a ridgeline, but I didn't give myself enough sag. More to come on getting it set for the best lay.
