    New in Columbia SC

    Been hanging around the forum for a while - decided to join in.

    Been camping on and off for years. Am always looking for a crowd to go on a trip with. All kinds of tent camping.

    No hammock yet - would love to tag along on a trip with some of you to get the ends and outs of the hammocks before I buy.

    Welcome aboard from Florida AB, believe there's 1 or 2 hangs up around your state. The 2 Annual Florida Hang is in Jan and I believe some are coming down from SC for it. Enjoy the fun!

    hey from high point nc and welcome to Hammock Forums.
    the kind folks here are among the most knowledgeable in the hammock world.
    i'm not one of those knowledgeable people so this site is a good reference library for me.
    "ask and ye shall find" really applies here. that's what i do.

    welcome and have fun.

    Hey friend, grab a king sized flat bed sheet and come to the Santee hang on the 30th. I'll help ya get started. Nothin' fancy mind you, but I can get you a feel for what you're looking for. If you've got a sleeping bag, that would be a help too. If you don't, any regular blanket will work. If you want to stay both nights you may want to bring some food, I can help you build and alcohol stove and we'll see if we can dig you up some camp kitchen items. Heck, it's turning into regular show and tell anyhow, it'd be a great place to get your feet wet. If you're interested, check this out

    Hey Andy, just around the corner from you in Irmo. If you are interested in attending the Santee hang, I have a loaner hammock and tarp if you are interested. Just a basic single layer Hammock Bliss with whoopie slings and a 10x10 tarp that I would pitch as a diamond. You are welcome to borrow it for the weekend. Hangs are a great way to learn and see different setups. Shoot me a PM if you are interested.

    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.
