    Newbie from North Alabama

    I am pretty new to this. I have only hammock camped a couple times, as having kids always occupied all my time, and a wife occupied all my money. Now I am getting divorced (yeah, I have money to buy gear) and the kids go visit their mom 1st and 3rd weekends (I have time). So I figured it is a great time to go all out.

    I will start another thread in a proper forum asking for gear critiquing later. I look foward to learning from you guys and maximizing my enjoyment of the great outdoors.

    Welcome to the forum from Florida!

    BTW, my hat is off to you ... having money after a divorce is a pretty good trick! One that I didn't manage to accomplish

    Well, I am currently going through the divorce. But it helps that I have custody of the kids, she no longer has access to my bank account to blow my money, and I got a job w/ about a 20% raise after we split up. So yeah, I guess I am pretty lucky on that one.
