    Gona Give Hanging A Try

    Hidee Ho from coastal N Carolina and SE TN Mts.

    Been a lurker for a while , trying to gather some info together.
    Great site by the way, found enough to be thoroughly confused, looked at lots of Hammocks, on line, didn't want to spend a bunch on my first one so after much reading , THANKS , I ordered a ENO dbl nest.
    Been tent,motorcycle,motorhome camping for 40+years. Had to quit backpacking, bad knees, so we now have a wood tent in the mts. of Cherokee NF in S.E. Tn.. My wife and I both ride BMW mc's, used to tent camp off them and looking forward to getting back after 2 yrs of building a wood tent.
    So after sleeping on the ground thought we'd give hanging a try.
    She is an accomplished seamstress so we'll do a lot of DYI stuff.
    well looking forward to meeting some of you.
    Got 8 acres of mountain wood's and anybody is welcome to camp there anytime.

    Welcome to HF from Bama.............if she is a seamstress you will have no issues with the DIY side of hammocks. Good luck and enjoy the relaxation.

    Hi-dee-ho from Oklahoma! Welcome to life in the trees (or whatever you can hang from)! An Eno was our first choice as well. It's a great start!

    Welcome to HF do you still have a motorcycle. My buddy and I have been in your area many times to ride and this year we started to hang. Great way to go.

    Still have M/C's thats how we found our property. We used to go to Franklin N.C. and spend the summer range out from there. Fell in love with TN. and started looking for something in our budget.
    Keep in touch, next time youall come our way stop by we have lots of room .
    The address is 110 Price rd. Reliance tn.
    If you are a member of advrider.com and have Garmin GPS I can send you a gps file showing exactly where we are. Great twistys , fire roads etc.

    Your going to love it Welcome to the forums from Ohio. I'd like to see pictures of the wood tent when you get a chance or a link if your willing to share. Will you be able to use hammocks in it?
