    Maybe a new convert to hammocks

    Hello from Mississippi. I am trying to be a convert to hammocks. I'll be hanging up my hammock this weekend.

    Here is what I just got:

    Hopefully everything will go well this weekend. I have enjoyed reading about hammocks and this place is a wealth of information.

    I enjoy spending time in the woods and hopefully can give back to this forum....it may take awhile since I am a complete newbie. Thanks for having me.

    welcome to the madness.

    go and watch Shug's videos on hammocks to learn how to set up your gear and the various options.

    Thanks to all for the welcome. I watched the videos by Grizz and by Shug. Grizz is straightforward and great info.

    As I watched Shug I did not know what to expect. He is an entertainer but gets his message across. I enjoyed both of these fellas. Shug made me laugh more!

    Welcome, Yellow Lab. I think that's a Grand Trunk Ultralight. Same as I'm starting with. +1 on watching Shug's videos. You're going to like it 'round here. Hope you enjoy your first hang.
