I've been reading through for a while now and even jumped in on a few post and just noticed the introduce yourself posting area. I live in Columbia , SC, actually closer to Irmo, and I'm pretty new to Hammock Camping. I had my first overnight hang last weekend at Lake Wateree and loved it!
Like many of you I have a bad back and had to find a solution to tent camping and found a lot of fans to the hammock. Best idea ever!
I'm active duty Army National Guard with 18 years total time - seven of those years were Marine Corps until it got shrunk up good back in '92. I love to talk about just about anything - especially if it involves camping, fishing, kayaking/canoeing, shooting.....well outdoors. I'm politically conservative but have many friends that are way left - hey I took an oath that says you're free to your opinion and love the fact that people take full advantage to exercise that right!
So anyhow, I look forward to getting to know you guys and hanging out!
