    New guy in WV

    Hello all, I've been lurking here for a while, finally decided to sign up not too long ago. I do a little camping, but want to start doing more, mainly off my dualsport bike. I had never even been in a hammock, until today. Set up my clearance hammock in the entry of the building just to see how it worked. I have to say I was pleased at how comfy it was. I think I'll put up some posts in the yard just for it.
    You guys seem like such a helpful bunch. I have another hammock with a net on it for camping, already ordered a set of dutch clips, and whoopie slings for it as well as an underquilt. Man just what I needed, another hobby to drain my funds.

    Welcome. I knew there were more hammock campers (potential or actual) in WV. We have so many trees and so few flat places for tents.

    Welcome! I'm sure that YJ has done enough to drain your funds. I like to joke "I used to have money now I have a Jeep". Good luck keeping your hammock habit in check.

    Thanks guys, the shed's not much but it houses all my toys/

    The Jeep is quite the money pit, poor things been setting there for a year since the last teardown. I got into bikes so it's been slow progress.
