    Hello From VA!

    Hello everyone, I go by the internet name of Dev, I am from Norfolk, Va. and new to hammock camping. In my little kid days I grew up with one of those webbed hammocks with the wooden bars which was a blast to lay in and hold on tight while someone spins you around. Pretty crazy stuff I know !

    As a way to get out of the house more I have decided to take up hammock camping. Starting out slow at first with mastering the wild backyard where I can get comfortable with my gear and rigging. I have gone through many posts before becoming a member and learned a good deal and decided to join the community. I have recently bought an ENO SN hammock as my first camping hammock and can't wait to start hanging. I can't wait to keep learning more, happy hanging everyone!

    Welcome from Philly.
    When I was a kid the only time we were in the house was to eat and sleep.

    Welcome to the forums from Indiana! Wild backyard, indeed - I like that!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
