    Noobie From Alabama:)

    Hi Ya'll:
    I have been on your site for about two days now almost 24/2. It is amazing the information out there. "Shug you are by far the funniest". I feel like you are already my bff. We are planning a AT trip in June, somewhere in VA, and started out thinking tent camping but the more we read about swingers or hangers we are 100% that is the way to go. Problem is hyber space is loaded with so much information about hammock types that I feel like I have been sent on a jounrey(via youtube) through WW's chocolate factory. So far lessons I have learned is hangers are great people. There are no bad hammocks from top-of-line to diy. It is the toppings that get complicated. Now with that being said, it would appear that Clark's North American has everything in one neat package. When you look at the price you have to have smelling sauce or being from the south it gave this little lady a case of the vapors. But when you start less and build you seem to always come up to about the same expense. But your simple hammock now looks like a Christmas tree with lots of things hanging with lots of strings everywhere. I mean you have to take a college 101 course to rig the thing. Somebody please help me because my brain is about to blow.

    Thanks, are there any hangs in our area that you know about? I read that is a good way to look at equipment and how it is set up.

    I'm planning to go to the Meriwether Lewis hang in Tennessee early February; though not in Alabama its close enough. Like you it will do me a lot of good to see what the experienced hangers are doing. I just hung a hammock for the first time yesterday and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. I took it one step at a time in the back yard, where I had access to the internet as a resource to help me with knots and such.

    Oh and it looks like there is a southern Alabama hang coming up, may be a lot closer for you.
