    Mavcaster from West Georgia

    Born and raised in Georgia although I'm in the Air Force so currently stationed at Langley AFB, VA. I bought my nephew a eno hammock with all the fixins a couple years back and he seems to love it. Here I am trying to get my B.O. Bag squared away and looking for a light backpacking shelter when I remembered the hammock idea and thought I would give it a shot. Ever since I was a little kid I've always been really fond of the idea. I plan on making a trip out to George Washington National Forest here in just a couple of weeks to try out some gear so we'll see how it goes. And there'll definitely be plenty of pictures! Wouldn't leave y'all hangin like that....no pun intended haha.

    One thing in particular that I do plan on learning from this site before I go test the hammock is gonna be a means of insulating the bottom of it besides with just my sleeping bag.

    Welcome from another GA hanger. This place is a virtual firehose worth of info. Strap yourself in and be prepared for a ton of info. There are plenty of other GA people around here. Ask any question you want and you will be sure to have someone chime in.
