    New guy from Sunny SoCal

    Hey Guys,

    I've been lurking around the forum for quite some time now and finally decided to join. I've enjoyed many trip reports and videos on here.

    I've recently started hiking and backpacking and finally see how important it is to pack light to not only save my back but also the rest of my body. I've camped for years but was always a ground dweller.

    I'm now in the process of making my own DIY gathered-end hammock using 1.9 Ripstop (let's see how this goes ) and hopefully be able to test it out on the trails near my town (San Gabriel Mountains).

    I look forward to reading and learning from everyone and hopefully get to meet some locals in my area for a hang of sorts.

    -Angus

    Thanks for the welcome everybody, I can tell this community already has a very good vibe...must be that "sleeping like a baby" feeling when in a hammock
