    Talking New Hammocker... 51st State?

    Hey everybody, glad to be a part of the forum! A friend just recently introduced me to hammocks, and WOW, I am sold! Two nights ago was my first time ever in one, and despite the off-and-on rain and high winds, it was very comfortable. So much easier and cleaner than a tent. I look forward to learning from you and hopefully enjoying some outings with whoever is nearby. I live about 1.5 hours North of Asheville, NC, about 30 minutes from Linville Gorge, Mt. Mitchell, and Roan Mountain (highest elevation on the AT). Would love to do some short trips to get familiar with the hammock thing once I get one .

    I'm a noob too, but this site has so much information it's hard to digest it all. Trying to decide which setup you want, or maybe a compination of multiple setups is challenging, but there's no way you can go wrong. Be sure to check out the videos offered. You'll learn a TON.

    Shug, you are one of the biggest reasons I became interested in this forum! A non-forum-member friend referred me to sign up by showing me lots of your YouTube videos (very inventive and fun). Not sure if he can get a delayed credit for the referral but, if possible, his future forum name is Velo0826. I saw you on Hawk's Bill in Linville Gorge in a video, and all I could think about was me being stuck in the bottom of that valley with the river well past flood stage and no way across but one bridge. Compass does not work down there because of the rocks, but when the mist became thin enough, I could see the rock formations on the East side. Can't wait to see you and the others out there. I need to become more eccentric anyways.
