    Hows It Hanginnn

    Heya guys and gals. My name is Lucas and I'm out of Raleigh NC. I just purchased my first hammock from another user and can't wait to try it out (perhaps this weekend). I'm a 2010 highschool graduate and am heading off to Mars Hill college in western North Carolina where Ill be majoring in music. Over the past couple days I've gained an immeasurable amount of information solely from this site. This is a great community that everyone has played a part to put together. Well thats that. Look forward to learning more!

    Welcome to ya! Western NC is a great place for hanging. My son and I just made a trip to the Linville Gorge late last month - what a great area. There are plenty of Western NC hangers as well. Good Hangin!

    Welcome to HF! Lots of folks here from NC. Hope to meet you at one of the many regular "hangs" sometime.

    Welcome! You're moving to heaven. A word of advice, you have to go to classes and study JUST enough (at least) to stay in school. Otherwise, it's back to Mom and Dad's house in hot steamy Raleigh.
