    Hello from Nashville!

    Hello everybody. My name is Kurt. I live in Nashville, but I am originally from south central Kentucky. I am in the process of being converted. I just recently got an HH Expedition from REI. I wish I had come here first and did a little research before I got it. I froze my buns off the first night in it and was very uncomfortable. I also didn't love the bottom entry so I took it back.

    However I have not given up on Hammock camping. I just love the idea of being off the ground and the hammock also Just seems cool to me with all the different suspension methods and tarps. I love gadgets and the hammock seems to make use of all sorts of gadgets.

    My first real job was with a company called Crown Tent and Awning. I have not sewn in a long time, but I know how and maybe one day I can put my old skills back to use.

    yo SouthpawKurt,
    welcome to HammockForums and hey from high point nc.
    there is a ton of stuff here to read, learn and ask about.
    if it's hammock related it's here or still waiting to be invented.

    Welcome to HF. There are a lot of hangers in middle TN. When you get ready to give it another go in cool weather just PM me if you want to try a UQ.

    Welcome aboard

    welcome

    like hangnout said lots of hangers in middle Tn. Also if you are on meetup there is a backpackers group here in Nashville. Quite a few folks in that group use hammocks.

    Thumbs up

    Welcome to and from Nashville! As Ewker said, there is a "Nashville Backpacker" Meetup.com group. Our June meeting is next Thursday evening at REI, with dinner beforehand at Ruby Tuesday for anyone wanting to join us for that too.

    Some of our members are on the Appalachian Trail in North Carolina right now. They just finished off Georgia. I know one is using a new hammock.

    I have a modified (zippers) HH and recently got an OES MacCat Deluxe rainfly.

    Hope to see you soon.
