    New guy in OKC

    Hey guys, I've been lurking the forums for quite a while, but I've just recently bought a hammock and tarp. So I thought I'd do the neighborly thing and introduce myself.

    My name is Jeremy and I live in Oklahoma City, OK. I am married to my beautiful wife of seven years and have two boys, a 3 1/2 year old and an 18 month old. I am currently in the Air Force, have been in for about 11 years now.

    I have just ordered a 1.1 double layer Warbonnet Blackbird and plan on ordering the Warbonnet Mamajamba once Brandon returns from his holidays. I have already posted a few questions, already bought an item from the For Sale section, and have been amazed at the willingness of people to help on this forum. I would have posted a ton more questions but there is already so my info on here that I just have to search for it and find multiple posts about anything. This site is addicting. I have never hung in a hammock, haven't received my WBBB yet and I'm already thinking about swapping the suspension for some self made whoopies! My wife thinks I'm crazy!

    Oh yeah, and I've already watched the entire Shug series. That man is an animal!

    Hello from OKC... It is so good to have another person from OKC on here!!! Woooo Buddy! Welcome to the forum, you are gonna love it here. Shug has some very informative videos. I would highly recommend them... if only for the entertainment value!! Fronkey is also quite entertaining as well. Again... Welcome to the trees!!

    Welcome Jeremy. I learned a lot from Shug and many others on this forum. Best place in the world to learn about hammocks.

    Welcome Jeremy, glad to see there are other newbies from Oklahoma. Just ordered my blackbird 1.1dbl last week. I have spent a lot of time reading all the great information on this forum. What a cool group to be associated with.
