    hello and what not

    WOW guess this could go in a few different places on the site so I've picked the general area...

    First let me through a big shout out and thank you to Shug for his videos and inspiration.

    I've been hiking and camping for a few years now but I only camp 1-2 times a year because even with my top notch self inflating sleep pad I wake up feeling like my spine is going to crack in half. Due to this I went in search of hammock options and boy oh boy do I think I've found my option.

    I've gone with a ENO Double Net (I'm a wide guy) whoopieslings, whoopie tree huggers, dutch clips, whoopie adjustable ridgeline, whoopie continues ridgeline for tarp and a WB superfly tarp (waiting for the superfly to come in).

    Today I went out into a local wildlife management area to setup my hammock with suspension for the first time and boy was I shocked... when really looking around I found a hammock camping site vs a normal camping site 10-1. Once I hung my hammock and got in it I was shocked at how comfy it was I almost fell asleep after laying in it for 5 minutes... It was so comfy I didn't know what to do... Now all that is left is to figure out how to make a under and over quilt as it was 50* out and I def felt the chill.

    Woot! Another Virginia hanger, and another Hokie!
    Check out the Roanoke Outdoor and Social Club, they're a real cool bunch.
    See ya in the woods!

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    Yes, it makes uploads easier, but the woods are beautiful with all that detail. Nice light.

    Oh yeah, your hammock setup looks great, too.
