    Greetings from Blacksburg VA

    I'm an 26 year old Engineering student at Virginia Tech. I got my first degree in Production Design from Savannah College of Art and Design. I have started backpacking more since i started college. I received an ENO double nest for a birthday present and that started it all. I have now started making my own hammocks to try different designs, because while i love my ENO it could be improved. I started watching Shug's video's and those lead me to this forum, so thanks so much Shug.
