    Howdy from Georgia

    I've been hanging for about a year since I met Dutch on the AT. I expressed my curiosity and concerns that hammocks just weren't UL enough. Well, he dispelled that myth and I've been sleeping much more comfortably since. Thanks Dutch!

    I lurk here frequently and often post on BPL. I'm heading NOBO on the AT for several weeks, leaving sometime next week. Truthfully, I am here just racking up some posts so I can sell a thing or two for some hiking funds, but I should add that I am grateful to this community for all of the knowledge I've received. I still sleep on the ground in the winter, but I might become a winter hanger in the future. Things are warming up, though, so thankfully I don't have to worry about that any time soon.

    Glad I could help. This is a very friendly place to chat and to sell gear.

    Welcome from Florida.
    Meeting up with Dutch was your good fortune!
    I too came here from BPL and found out that you don't need a team of Sherpas to hammock camp. You can be comfortable and light at the same time.
