    Thumbs up Not Hangin In FLA....... YET!!

    Hello All,
    Just found the site a few days ago and joined yesterday.

    I was drawn to this place by none other than the "Shug" and his videos.

    I live on the Space Coast of Florida with my wife and 2 children (Girl 2, Boy 7 months).

    Whenever I have a spare minute I enjoy getting out on my atv, doing a little shooting, camping, and hiking.

    My borthers-in-law and I like to go to the Linville Gorge area for camping and hiking adventures. I actually stumbled upon Shug's Linville Gorge Series of videos and he drew me in like a fly to honey. Then I found his series for noobies!

    I have been thinking of hammock camping for a couple years now (thats how long it's been since I hiked and camped).

    My wife is buying me an ENO Double for my birthday in August. I figure I will use it around the house and the start modifying it from there!

    I look forward to getting my hammock and Hangin around the forum learning everything I can from everyone here, hopefully I'll be able to contribute in some way!

    Looking forward to it

    Tbull

    Glad you found your way to the forums. Shug's videos have help many people find thier way here. This is a great place to learn all about hammocks and hanging in general.

    Welcome from out west! I'm glad your birthday is almost here, and your wife has already ordered you a hammock. You may want to clean out a spare closet for all your future gear, this gets addictive, but sooo comfortable!

    A big welcome from SC!

    I have the eno one link with the double-nest, and I find it quite comfortable- well worth the money!

    Welcome! If Shug had a nickel for every person that came here from watching one of his videos, he'd be a rich man.
