    Howdy, a texas newbie here.

    It had been years since I'd been camping, but to celebrate my impending old age I decided to get back out there in a new way. Bought myself a Grand Trunk hammock and slings and a copy of The Ultimate Hang, and spent a couple night under the stars. One night on the ground in a tent to appease the spouse, then the next night in my brand spankin' new hammock and I'm hooked! Or hung? Or suspended? Or...
    My first night in a hammock was actually during the Second Annual Texas Butt-Bake, we were just a few state parks away.
    I've already picked up a few awesome hints from this place from lurking, but figured I ought to sign up and be a contributing member. That is, once I've got some knowledge to contribute.

    Hello fellow Texan.
    I want to apologize ahead of time
    for this new addiction that you picked
    up. There is nothing like it.

    I am from Corpus Christi down south.
    We all love talking hammock. Welcome!

    Welcome from your neighbor to the east! I was in College Station last year for the A&M/LSU game. Interesting place College Station is.

    lol! I'm a transplanted Hokie, but I get paid to be an Aggie fan so I am. Plus all the maroon I own transferred over pretty nicely.
    Just looked up the info on Fairfield, and I'll do my best to be there!
