    You will need a tarp in case of rain and some type of bottom insulation. The walmart blue ccf pads are pretty good for starters.

    keep an eye on th group hang forum and make it to one of those. There are several in the NC area. It's like browing through the biggest hammock warehouse you can imagine. If it is made or imagined for hammock hanging one of the group hangs is the best place to find them. If you work it right you may even be able to leave with something tucked under your arm. Lots of folks, at least in the midatlantic, happen to have extra gear "tucked in the car in case they need it."
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Join the hang in Hot Springs, NC, June 12-14. It's going to be a fun weekend of getting to see our friends from here, and drooling over the new toys everyone has.

    Bring whatever insulation you might need. Maybe a tube for floating down the river, or hiking gear if you want to walk the trail some. Check out this thread for more info...

    It will be a fun weekend.
