    John from Alabama!!

    Hey guys from North Alabama! I love the outdoors and randomly seen a flyer about hiking hammocks about 2 months ago. I am super new to it but now I am convinced it will be the best way for me and my kids to enjoy the outdoors from now on instead of on the cold ground that makes me stiff thinking about it.

    Welcome to the forum there is a wealth of information to be found. I live in central Alabama, keep a eye out for Alabama hangs.

    Welcome Alabamian

    Welcome from the capital city! I am new to this as well. I got pulled in due to the DIY factor. I have made 4 hammocks so far. I usually like to gear up so that I can cover for others without gear, and plus it's nice to practice a craft. Enjoy the forum!

    Hey Tuf! Welcome to the forums! Im sure you'll enjoy your recent conversion to hammocks as you elevate and enlighten yourself in the ways of backpacking better

    Im currently live in New Orleans, LA so a little ways from you. Me and a couple of my friends are thinking about heading to Steele, AL in a week or two to go to Horse Pens 40 to "hang" out and climb some boulders.

    Welcome John, from another central Alabamaian! This is a great place to learn and a great bunch of folks to learn from.

    John:
    Welcome to HF from Bama (John as well).......not far down the road from you in Gadsden. aboyd, some of his groundling friends, myself and Mandydawn are planning on hanging the weekend of March 4 at the Turnipseed Campground just outside Cheaha State park. You are more than welcome to drive down and come see the different rigs and hang out around the fire with us.
