    Ok, come hug me

    My brother (TN9mmshooter) says I need to create a hug me thread. So here it is.

    Long time hiker, first time hanger. Just got the ENO Doublenest for a birthday. I have been very interested in getting into hammock camping as my hips and back have begun protesting the sleep pad. I'm gettin' a little old.

    I can't wait to get this thing in the woods. I will be working this week on my tarp set up and a bug net of some sort. Can't sleep nwith spiders.

    This forum is a wealth of knowledge. I do appreciate everyone sharing. I am hoping to pass this bug on to my daughters, one of whom already hikes with me and another itchin' to go.

    Welcome to HF and good luck with the new found addiction. Have fun with the daughters in the woods and you should have no more back pains or hip issues with the hammock.

    HAHA Im a huge hugger of both people and trees, and here is a huge hug(((((((((((((((((((HUG))))))))))))))))))))))))) ))), I had a nickname in HS and college that I got due to the fact that I dident like to shake hands and hugged people when I meet them reguardless of who they were. BUt any ways welcome to HF you will find welth of knowledge and lots of kind people. Enjoy your new addiction to hammocks Happy Hanging and hikeing.

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
