Hello everyone!! First off, I must give credit to Shug for leading me to this great site. I was on youtube looking at Superior hiking trail videos, when I stumbled upon some of Shug's videos. Well I think that he convinced me to go with a hammock. My girlfriend and I just got back from a trip on the SHT. We packed a Marmot Hideaway 4 (yeah yeah, I know that is way to big!!!) Long story short we both want to get hammocks, so I joined this community to learn as much as I can before making a purchase. I also want to get involved more in the outdoor community. I hope that I can make some contributions to this fine place, as I know I will be soaking up a heck of a lot of information. Can't wait to get into my first hammock!!! I am thinking about going homemade, but still trying to figure that one out. Thanks ahead of time to everyone that has posted their wealth of knowledge. I will try and not ask questions that have already been covered, but no promises.
Thanks a lot!!
