    A Hello from rockwalker

    Hello HF,
    I am a noob to hammocking but with the help of this community I have leaned quickly.

    My background:
    I live in Georgia about 40 miles west of Atlanta. I have been a hiker for 20 years, a flyfisherman for 15 years, and a lover of the outdoors my whole life.

    I recently decided to upgrade my equipment as most of it is at least ten years old. As I was researching various equipment and suppliers I came across bushcrafting and thought it would be cool to give it a go. So I bought a cheap hammock and a quality (and inexpensive) tarp. I had a couple of great outtings and fell in love with hammocking.

    I have been watching one youtube video after another (the professor, shug, bablefish5) so I could absorb as much info as possible. This is how I found HF.net

    I just purchased a wbbb and am waiting impatiently for its arival. Also some whoopie slings from AHE are on there way. I have lightened my pack weight from 38lbs to 23lbs.

    I am excited. It is like hiking and camping is new to me again. I look forward to this new venture and to getting to know all of you.

    Come see me at my YT channel. rockwalker01.

    Hey bigbamaguy,
    Never in AL (I like to fish where I camp and out state licenses are pricey). My son goes to a place called sandrock. It sounds cool. I would like to head over there some day.
