    The new guy from Morganton NC

    Hi I'm Waterbar Jim, and new to the forum. My name was given to me by some friends that I help do trail maint in the Linville gorge area. I figure a wide clean trail enhances the experience, and we do our best to make that happen.

    Years ago I went from tent camping to tarp camping to hammock under the tarp. 25 years ago when the hammock was one of those net hammocks they used to sell that was as big as your fist and would hold 500 pounds.

    My how things have improved, and its good to be getting into a situation where I can camp (and hang) more.

    Welcome Jim. Sure is good to see you here. It is a pleasure to cut brush and briars, and dig and clean waterbars with you. Hope to get back out there soon.
