I'm from Missouri and I've been lurking here on your forum for a little while and thought I'd better say hi. I've also been enjoying Shugs videos for quit some time on youtube. I'm excited about buying my first hammock. I've been hiking and camping all my life, ground camping with all the bugs and critters...and rocks. I want to get active and ask some questions about which hammock i should buy first. I'm the type of person to research first BEFORE i spend my cash.
