    an old dog can learn new tricks

    Hello all
    I first starting hanging in the jungle of Panama when I was an instructor at the jungle warfare center there. We used what we called a GP net which was a net knotted at both ends. since then I have used an eno and recently acquired a traveller and a blackbird. Love them both. I recently bought some whoppie slings from arrowhead and am amazed how simple but effective they are. I also have a Hennesy explorer which will be going to 2q for mod 4.
    I dont backpack any longer but am very close to the AT at my Mountain home. Wayah Bald. I live on the eastern slope off of Wayah RD.
    I turned 65 on my last birthday but still get out in the woods every chance I get. often I will just walk into the woods and hang out.
    I have learned so much from this site. From Shug's videos and Professor Grizz. Thanks y'all!
    My primary residence in Irmo,SC. I am an old dog but I definetly learned a bag full of new tricks from the members of this forum. Glad to be a posting member now.

    Welcome Badfoot! You'll be right at home on HF with lots of ideas and friendly folks. There is a pretty good contingent of South Carolinians here (including some like me...grew up in SC) so perhaps you can find some locals to hang with.

    welcome to HF Badfoot!!!!! As Beep said, there are several hangers around your area and make sure to look for group hangs that get scheduled. Great way to meet the members and put names to faces............
