    Complete Neophyte

    Howdy all!

    Been lurking on and off for awhile now and with spring on the way and a few references to this site on Wintertrekking.com and bushcraftusa.com I thought I'd wander over and introduce myself, now is good a time as any.

    I am totally new to this hammock camping thing and look forward to learning a bunch of useful stuff and maybe just maybe, eventually I'll have something to share.

    I can see I have lots of work to get up to speed on the lingo and equipment aspect of this hammock thing. I have been taking in some videos from Shug and the Professor, very informative and entertaining. Thanks to both of you!!

    I don't even know really where to start so I better quit this and get back to "learning"

    Thanks,
    CC

    You start buy getting a hammock, setting it up, laying in it, then repeat! It's all good from there! Don't forget to take pictures!

    When will we learn to say lying in a hammock! The other is good, too, though strenuous. Repeat is okay, but forget the pictures.

    Sorry, Deucalion - it's not fair that you should be singled out like this. I promise this is my last grammar/usage rant.

    And I add my welcome to canoecountry. We are glad you've joined us and will not criticize your choice of words when you post.

    Welcome to HF from a fellow Minnesota. You should try and make it to the Northern Hang. You'll learn so much stuff there first hand and meet fellow hangers in the area.
