    Smile Joined in March - first hang in August

    I had my first successful hang in August 2011. I had such a good time and I am really enjoying the hammocking. I have some more to learn but that's part of the fun.

    So many people on here have helped me learn so much about hammocking and making my own gear. I have listed as many as I can remember here:

    The BlackCat Tarp instructions by BlackBishop351
    REALLY big help for making my tarp. I am very happy with it – it works really well.

    Just Jeff's Hiking Page

    I read many helpful hints but for sure you helped me with my DIY hammock and a BlackBishop sack I made

    gear-report.com
    many useful pictures, instructions, and diagrams – another big help with my tarp
    I am planning to use the diy gravity filter instructions at some point
    I also made the snakeskins

    BackwoodsDaydreamer –sclittlefield.
    Very good and easy to follow instructions for the IX underquilt. So far this is working well for me.
    Also used the diagrams for reinforcements for tarps

    I really liked your guylines w/ lineloks. Your video was very helpful too. I put them on my tarp and I really do like how they work.

    All your videos are informative and have answered many of my questions. Plus they are highly entertaining.

    I really like to watch your videos about gear and where you hike and camp.

    Thank you to all of you and to everyone who has shared their information and experience with others. Kat

    Tis lovely to tribute the guys who helped out with the development of your super looking set up and a fine recommendation for other noobs (me a case in point!)... I'm finding I get an onset of grumps if I don't hang out regularly enough now I've been a few times, beware... in a good way...

    Thanks. Are there any trees in West Texas? I hope so. I am carrying my pad with me but so far I have been finding what I need for hanging....was a little worried about the state parks here in Missouri because everything is so groomed but okay so far.
