    Definitely check out Shug's videos. They are a great place to start filled with useful information and highly entertaining.


    Group hangs are great to gain hands on experience with lots of different setups and rigs. Although the Mt Rogers one may not be the most newbie friendly, but I'm sure they wouldn't mind if you showed up in a tent as cold hanging takes a good amount of skill to do so safely.

    that was A LOT of information! way too many options!

    I just want a simple, light, affordable, and able to withstand a thru hike of the JMT set-up. I like the blackbird, but I just bought the nano.

    hmmmmm.... when is the Mt. Rogers hang?
