I'm new to the world of "hanging" as I now find out it's called. I am from Clemmons, NC, and I am a college student at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts (UNCSA) in Winston-Salem, and there are a few hangers there. I study theatrical lighting design and technology. My real interest though is concert lighting. I plan to be a concert lighting designer one day.
As far as why I am joining, we bought my dad a hammock a while ago (brand/model unknown, sorry!), and I thought it was a cool hobby, and then seeing it at school made me want to get a hammock too. I didn't really consult this forum for buying advice, but I read a few reviews online. When the Yukon Outfitters Double Parachute Hammock went on sale on Woot! I had to jump on it. I just got it in the mail today and I have no idea how to hang it temporarily between two trees, so I hope to browse and learn some more about that. Wish me luck!
