    First hanging ... I'M ADDICTED

    Just got back from my first hanging. My girlfriend's family has 100+ acres in North Alabama. We scouted out the land and found a perfect place close to a creek. I was shocked by how well we got our site together. It was my first time to hang a hammock and rain fly.

    We cooked pasta using an MSR Reactor stove and it boiled water so freaking quick. I was very surprised.

    I have a lot to learn, but I am officially addicted!

    Once you hang, you can never go back to ground! Welcome to the trees

    That sounds wonderful. I'm glad you enjoyed it - the hanging flood gates have just opened.
