    welcome from ohio!

    plenty on here to learn from

    Also keep an eye out for hangs in your area, it's a great way to see multiple different setups in person and get an idea for what'd work for you and you get to meet some great people.

    Glad to have you


    P.S. if you haven't already, youtube Shug's Hammock videos, they'll give you a great foundation to start getting you out and hammock camping

    Welcome from the Jersey Shore! There's nothing worse than a quiet noob. You're supposed to ask a lot of questions so we can all help you, while at the same time laughing at you! I've asked so many stupid questions I can't count them.

    A few forum members might be in your area December 9 to 11 for a Pine Barrens hike and hang. Friday 12/9 7.5 mile hike from Batsto Village to Lower Forge Wilderness Camp, then hike 7 miles to Batona Camp and spend the night there Saturday. Here's the thread:

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=43145

    Dylan and I are planning on hiking in during the daylight hours on Friday (1 to 3 pm), but a couple of members like Kayak Karl may hike in at night.

    If you want to join us and try out hammocking, I can bring a hammock setup that will work for you if you're not taller than 6 ft. Kayak Karl and Dylan have some sweet gear, and we all have different setups for you to check out. If you're taller than 6 ft., somebody might have a hammock you can borrow.

    If you don't want to hike, you can always just meet us at Batona Camp Saturday night. You can drive in from Rt. 206 turning off on Carranza Road.

    This will be my third trip to the Pine Barrens in a month. I have a couple of trip reports here:

    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=42964

    If you can't make it this weekend, the 5th Annual NJ Winter Hang will be Jan. 27-29, 2012 at Batona Camp. It could be cold, but HF members can likely loan you gear to stay toasty!

    Welcome again!

    That's no problem. Plenty of hammocks on the market to accommodate your frame or you can always make your own. However, I'm 5'11" and 160 lbs., and my three hammocks are all low-budget and built for people 6 ft. or smaller, 250 lbs. or less.

    Hey there from one reenactor to another. My part of history is the fur-trade and mountain men, but history is fun no matter what time your fond of. You're going to love life in the trees. It's a whole new world. There is no such thing as a stupid question, and life is alot easier when learned from those with experience. I'm sure you'll notice the folks to be just as friendly here as those who do reenactments. It's always a pay it forward type of environment in both communities. Good luck to you, I know you'll love it!
