    Hi ya'll from Mississippi

    A harty hello to all forum members. I'm about as noob as noob can be. Green, green, green, but enthusiastic as anyone. My name is Todd. Married (18+ yrs. to date), father of two (hench the handle DaddyDaddy - that's pretty much all I hear most days...sweet music it is). Blue collar guy living in central MS. I love the mountains and have been a ground camper for what little camping and hiking I've done over the years. I've been looking at hammocks for about 9 months to see where I wanted to start.
    Some of the members may not want me to say this but Shug is a bit of a hero to me at this point (I know I know nothing about him - just the videos), but he makes me laugh and really had some great ideas for me to work on. I'm in a HH Deluxe Explorer with a Hex fly. Working on my DIY underquilt and top quilt. Looking forward to an inaugural cold hang soon (assuming we ever see a winter here.
    Looking forward to learning a lot, meeting some great people, making new friends and much much shorter posts.

    Shug is quite the inspiration to many.

    Hi mississippi and a big welcome from oklahoma. yes it is a theme to blame shug. i am also a big fan of his and with much admaration blame him for taking me off the ground and into a hammock. Hf is a great place to learn as much as you want or is to know about the world of hammocks. welcome to the family
    I also strongly recomend "The Ultamite Hang" by Derek Hanson. great help to me.

    Hey man. Really happy to see another metro area person. I'll probably PM you down the road to get some pointers, etc. Thanks for the welcome.
