    Red face Howdy from Athens GA

    Hello my fellow hangers- I just joined up after eavesdropping on your threads for a little while. I've been hanging for about seven years now. I just ordered a Clark ultralight since my dependable old Hennessey is wrecking my knees. Reading the threads on here really helped me decide; that plus the fact that a Warbonnet BB is hard to come by recently! Not to say I won't give Brandon's hammock a try later on- I've admitted that I'm a gear addict and that my gear closet has become unmanageable! Looking forward to meeting some cool folks in here!

    Automatic for the People

    Ha Ha- good allusion to old Athens there. Weaver D's has the best squash casserole known to man, and his collards ain't bad either. In case you didn't know, Weaver D's is a soul food restaurant here in Athens. Weaver's motto is Automatic, For the People, which REM borrowed (with his blessing) to name one of their best albums (in my opinion anyway).

    Howdy, Outdoor Nut! I just bought all the makin's for a new DIY hammock in Athens (JoAnn's and Hancock's) while visiting family there. I combed Academy Sports for paracord too, but to no avail. They all told me about a great outfitting in Five Points, but I never made it over there. Anyway, welcome! Let us know how you like your Clark Ultralight!

    Welcome to the forum. I spent one very hot summer there taking a course at the Navy Supply School in 1982. I imagine things have changed a little since then.

    Changes in Athens

    Yes Gunner, Athens has changed quite a bit. Actually, the Supply Corps School is closing this year, and they're going to turn the campus into a satellite of the Medical College of Georgia. It's still a weird little town, and I like it that way!
