    Hi ya'll

    Well I grew up in a camping family (tents then pop upís) and I canít recall a year that we didnít have a campout. Then after I left home it was still in my blood, but I wanted to try different styles. Iíve done everything from tarps to bevy sacks to domes. My first try with a hammock was an old army surplus jungle hammock. WHAT A NIGHTMARE!!! Iíve had better nights wrapped in news paper sleeping on the ground. Then I saw this guy named Shug on You Tube. Talk about funny, but best of all informative. Need I say more! Now hammocks are the ONLY way to go. Thanks Mr. Emery.

    Excellent Ugene. I'm like you...with all the camping I've done, why in the world am i just now getting into hammocks?!
    It's a hammock thing, you won't understand!

    The wife no longer kicks me out of bed after she saw a hammock hanging in the dog house.

    Welcome from Florida. Shug is our resident spider. Just when you think it's safe to be flying around YouTube, you get caught in his web and deposited here!

    Welcome from PA. I had seen some of Shug's videos and had a good laugh, but it was the DIY forum and Fronkey's bug net video that really drew me in. Check out those skeeters he has in his parts.
