    Smile Greetings from the North Coast (of Ohio)

    Hello,

    I'm just starting into hammocks after having several of my trail buddies transition over to it last year. This forum is already proving valuable to help me out as I get my setup going. I also plan to DIY some stuff soon. I do most of my backpacking over in PA in the Allegheny National Forest. There is a dearth of backpacking opportunities in northeast Ohio.

    So my first hang will be this weekend. Going with my son's Boy Scout troop to Hocking Hills and going to work on my setup there. Hope I don't need any Boy Scout administered first aid for a fall.

    I see lots of Ohio people on the boards here. Too bad I can't check out the hang on the 22nd. Off to Cedar Point with the family for some fun.

    NEOH BPC is a great group to go backpacking with. And some of us even hang from time to time.
