    Future hanger from Melbourne, Australia

    Hello everyone - its time I stopped lurking and started to get involved. These forums are such a wealth of information and make hanging an irresistable proposition.

    With the warmer months coming up here I'm thinking it's a great opportunity to try out hanging for the first time without having to shell out for all the gear immediately. I'm tossing up between a few lightweight options for some mid-length hikes in the coming months.

    I'd love to know if there are m/any people here from Melbourne - I'd love to get some local tips/knowledge and maybe even see some other rigs in action!

    Phil
