    I値l try to post this without crashing the site again. Lol
    As I tried to post the other day, I知 a newbie to hammocks and HammockForums. I have had a love of the outdoors from the time I was a boy scout and now that I have a son in scouts the love for the outdoors has grown. But I have some lower back problems and have tried cots, air mattress and foam pads but was still unable to get a good nights sleep while camping.
    Well, about a year ago I ran in to SGT Rock痴 web site and after reading just about all he had to offer I got a $14.00 grand truck hammock. WOW!!!! What a different that hammock made. Finally, a consistent nights sleep.
    Just shortly after that I found Shug on YouTube and he gave me the confidence to try one of my old foam pads just setting there doing no good to anyone and try to sleep in the winter in my new found sleep system. In Dec. I became a forum member to try and find some new ideas and setups for my hammock. To my surprise I found SGT. Rock and Shug here. I thought it may be cool to see how many of you guys may have a website like SGT Rock and Just Jeff or YouTube Channels like Shug and Fronkey that can help a Newbie like me see some of the ideas you guys talk about, or just laugh with you when Fronkey vs The Killer Tree.
    So if you feel comfortable please share a link to your website, blog or YouTube channel.
    Thanks for your help, ideas and friendship and hope to see you on the trail.

    Look at the top left of the forum and click the Video Directory button. There's links to over 500 YT videos there.

    Welcome RF! Glad you found some comfort, I feel your pain with lower back issues. It's a constant battle.

    You should check out any hangs near you and get out and meet some people and see some different kinds of gear.

    Welcome to the forums! I always think about doing youtube videos, but I don't think I can top what's already out there. When I started hammocking in late 05, 06 there wasn't much out there about it. I started before I had even heard of the site but stumbled on HF while searching for info. Now there is tons of info. I seriously can't understand how anyone would sleep on the ground. Anyway, I digress. Welcome again!
