    Hello from Huntsville, AL

    Hello from Huntsville, I am new to hammocking. I just got and Eno DN for Christmas. I am getting one for my son, and I think I am going to make one for my daughter. It looks like there is a lot of activity in Alabama. I am currently listening to the southeasternbackpacker.com pod cast. I am looking forward to hanging out with friends.

    Welcome to the forum and the addiction. There are several folks in the near vicinity to Huntsville. I am in Ardmore part time. Also, there are some group hangouts that happen within a couple of hours of Huntsville a couple of times each year. Keep an eye out for those and come on down, or up as the case may be.

    Welcome to HF from another Bama hanger, I'm down in Gadsden. We have a group hang planned for Dec 10- 12 that will be near Mt Cheaha in the Talladega National Forest. You are more than welcome to come down and see some of the other members gear and hang out with us for a while if you would like. You can find the information in the Heart of Dixie thread in the Hangouts Forum.

    Welcome from a former NoAL'er. Lived my whole life in Decatur. Finally escaped a year ago,about the same time I discovered hammocking. Coincidence? I think not

    edit: I just realized my avatar pic is from the land trust loop up on Monte sano. Shame they don't allow hangin up there...
    It could be that the purpose of my life is merely to serve as a warning to others.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. I would have loved to make the hang this weekend, just a bit too cold for my 11 y/o. Maybe when it is warmer. I look forward to meeting you all.
