Thread: Howdy from TX

    Howdy from TX

    Howdy! My name is James I live in central TX and am interested in hammocking throughout the southwest. I'm new to backpacking too so I joined this forum to learn more about this unconventional camping style.

    Thanks in advance for all the info.

    Welcome, neighbor. You'll find lots of great info here. Make sure you check out Shug's 10-part hammock series on Youtube, as well as his vids on what he packs for his hikes. They helped me a ton.

    What he said. Shug's videos are great and will cram you with a ton of information.

    And welcome from Lubbock

    Welcome to the forum from Indiana.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Welcome from Florida! You have plenty of good folks to hang with in Texas. I've attended their annual group hang and you must put it on your calendar for November.

    Since you are new to backpacking as well, I strongly suggest you become a "Donating Member" which will open up the entire forum so you can participate in discussions outside of the narrow confines of hammocks. It will be the best $10 you ever spent!
