I'm James, I started lurking here about a month ago when I went camping with some hangers. I spent the night tossing and turning on the ground waiting for the sun so I could get up, while the hangers snored happily away in their swinging quilted cocoons.
The next day I had them give me all the info about their setups and I started looking around at gear. The Whoopie sling blew my mind. I've started to convert, but I have to keep my ground setup as long as I live in AZ. I think hanging on a saguaro is illegal, and we have a shortage of trees in some areas.
I should be moving in the next few months, so I'll probably end up somewhere with more trees, which means I can hang more. I would love to not have to camp on the ground anymore. I'm tired of slopes and rocks and goat's heads.
I've learned a lot on here, and look forward to learning more.
