    Hello from Tennessee

    Hello hangers and forumites. My name is Mike and I live just outside Knoxville, TN. I am fairly new to hammock camping and brand new on the forum. I have been learning everything I can on the web...thanks to ole Shug for giving me the hammock fever on his youtube channel.. and hoping to learn a lot more on here and as I go. I'm hanging in an ENO Doublenest with a kelty noah's tarp 9 right now and loving it so far...hoping to get the chance to go on a real hang soon. Any advice for a noob is appreciated. Thanks to all and have a good one!

    Welcome to the forum. It's good to know K-town's camping perspective has been elevated a notch by one more hammock hanger. There's lots of places to hang nearby. Have you lived here long? If not, there's several of us from E. TN that can hook you up on some great places to go. Send me a PM and perhaps we can get together to talk hammocks. There's nothing like seeing a setup firsthand, especially getting started.

    Thanks for the greeting. Lived in TN all my life, but spent most of it in Tellico Plains..dont know if you know where that is or not. I dont know many places to hang or even ground camp around k-town though, so learning a few would be great

    You guys are making me homesick! Vols, gin clear trout streams and surrounded by some of the best mother nature has to offer East of the Mississippi! Used to have a place on Tellico Lake... I'd move back tomorrow!

    Welcome to the comfortable side of camping, Spamburglar. As for where to go, we'll get you sorted!
