    That's awesome! Where did you guys have it?
    I'm actually in Virginia right now as I'm in the military. I should be back in California for a month from mid-December.

    I would love to come to one of these and nerd out and learn!

    Great tip! I nerd out that way too except it's digital for me. I end up saving lots of URLs using a word processor's outline function.

    (a) Straps
    i. Whoopie Slings

    That example is probably not even correct but that's the most knowledge that I can throw out at the top of my head.

    You'll get it all sorted out. There is a great chance of mandatory info overload, which makes you stay on here searching day and night. But, that's not a bad thing.

    Great trail name, by the way!
    Searching day and night? I can see it being a bad thing if I make an idol out of.

    Also, thank you! For there is no other name under heaven that has been given to men...

    Searching is great and you'll learn a lot...maybe too much. I believe that the information is much more absorbable (not a real word ) when you have some personal experience to draw from while you are learning. I say just jump right in! Get yourself some inexpensive basics and start playing. There isn't anything all that difficult to hanging until you start hanging around here. Course, this place is chuck full of nerds! Much love to the hammock nerds, geeks, quants, and lest we forget mathaletes. Therefore, we tend to make things complicated sometimes just for the sheer joy of it.

    Seriously, get something and get out there, then come back with questions or new search term ideas. Otherwise, you risk brain-rupture and nobody wants that.

    Assuming you aren't already locked-up in a padded room unable to read this, welcome to the Forums!
    Trust nobody!

    Lizzie and her nephew were there.
