    Hammock Newbie

    Hello all,

    Just signed up on the forum last night. I went out camping last weekend and a buddy of mine had a hammock setup and it totally blew my mind. I have been a hammock junkie since, researching everything I can since I got back home. Looking forward to learning and talking with everyone on the forum. If anyone has any useful links or advice it would be highly appreciated.

    Joe

    Shug's "How-To" videos are a great place to start. Also, Just Jeff's site is a great place to learn as well. http://www.tothewoods.net/HammockCamping.html

    Yes....Shug has got it going.....he can hang and ride his unicycle and eat poptarts all while juggling his many broken cameras.........
    You can spend $200 to 400 dollars on getting yourself set up.....or you can learn to make your own.....
    there is many ways to become a hanger....
