The moment I got the ad out of my hammock and strapped on an underquilt I knew things would never be the same again.
    Oh yeah when you explained that, I could then see how the sentence worked. My brain has these slow spots sometimes, or a lot of times haha!

    Thank you Peter_pan from another newbie.

    Would have been smart to have read all of this before my first hammock outdoors weekend!

    Bama Man,

    My son's mother has recently relocated to Fort Payne. I'm looking at doing some overnight hike/hangs in that area when I bring my son to see his mother. Any recommendations?

    if you're wondering why you haven't gotten any replies, it's because you probably should ask this in a new, standalone topic, rather than ask at the end of an article aimed at first-time hammockers that was posted in 2009 —NINE years ago!!

    I only happened to look because I was curious about how relevant it still is (mostly), and I almost didn't look at the comments at all, so your lucky I decided to see how old the last comment on the thread was
