    Noob from NC

    Been messin' with hammock camping for the last couple of years. got a simple ENO set up. Nothin' fancy. Long time mtb'er that goofs off with hiking/lightweight backpacking as a side endeavor in my precious spare time (which has become almost non-existent with two wild little boys ages 4 and 2).

    Here's some pics from past hangs:

    Lost Cove (NC) last year:


    South Mtn St Park/sawtooth camp site (NC) a couple years ago:


    Just picked up a ULA Ohm after watching Shug's vids. Just makes sense to me. It is a very well-constructed pack. Will be testing it out in Linville Gorge in about 10 days - looking forward to it!

    I joined the site b/c I'm really interested in the DIY stuff. I want to make my own tarp eventually.

    Welcome aboard, always glad to have another hanger, especially a Carolina hanger. There's a big group hang starting tomorrow at Linville Gorge, base camp near teh Hawksbill parking lot. Stop by if you get the chance. Glad you're here.
