    NC new guy

    NC new guys first post. I have been debating the idea of a hammock. Never used one so im as dumb as they come when it comes to hammocks. So if any of you guys have some good beginners info just let me know. Maybe someone can school me on hammocks altogether .

    Howdy from another NC hanger ... first thing's first ... sit down and view Shug's Video series ... that'll save you a ton of time and keep you in stitches for hours!

    Well ... maybe we can meet up sometime ... lots of great guys associated with the forum here in NC. Good guys one and all. Enjoy Shug's videos ... there's a lot of good info there and more than enough to provoke questions in a direction you might like to go.

    Welcome Red. I'm just up the road in the Hickory/Granite Falls area.
    Like Hawk-Eye said, Shug's videos will answer a lot of questions, and any others will be quickly answered here. Have fun with it!

    Glad to have you aboard. Just like Hawk-eye said, start out with the Shug video's. Take your time and do your research there is a set-up out there that is right for you.

    The folks on this forum are the best anywhere.
