    North Georgia hammock dude

    Hi hammock-folk!

    Thanks for having me on the forums. I live in the Lake Lanier area of Georgia, and have a home in a wooded subdivision. We live at the end of the cul-de-sac, and behind us is a nice patch of secluded woods with some great old trees. When the bugs die, I get out there in the back yard and hang on the weekends.

    I'm looking to get out into the mountains and do some hammock-camping, so it appears I've come to the right spot. I have a decent amount of gear, and have just recently taken my hammock and tarp to Wyoming and camped out in the wilderness. Being alone, it was a bit freaky, but I had a good time.

    Love hammocks. I have a Doublenest, Atlas straps, a decent Eno tarp, bug net, gear sling, and my next step is to learn about better/lighter suspension. Might even look to invest in a better quality and lighter hammock, although mine does the trick pretty darn well.

    I've watched a ton of vids, lurked this site for awhile, and would love to connect with some of the people in my area. Hammocks are a great way to relieve stress and tension and a cheap enough hobby. I've also got a mountain bike that I'm building into an adventure touring rig so I can bikepack up north. Need to hook up with some other people interested in the same stuff.

    Thanks for having me!

    Welcome to the Forums. I live in north east Georgia, and find myself in flowery branch a couple times a month for their night court. PM me if you want to get up and hang sometime.

    Welcome from NE MS, Rob! My 1st ever lay down in a hammock was on a WY wilderness hike. Where in WY did you hang?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Thanks for the warm welcome, all!

    BillyBob58 - I'm originally from Laramie, and my dad has a nice piece of property near Tie Siding and the Colorado border in an area called Boulder Ridge. It's a really spectacular place, and very remote.
