    New guy looking to learn.

    Greetings! I am excited to become a part of this expanding community of people. Looking through several posts over the last few hours, I knew I should join and take a more active part.

    I am a former Eagle Scout who is now helping my son work his way through the BSA program. I spent a few nights in hammocks in my youth, but mainly as a novelty. Now, I am looking for a way to get a better nights sleep and not have to carry so much gear on my tired, old back!

    I do not have any gear specific to hammock camping, but i figured this was the best place to start! I plan to spend a few more hours poking around the forums and trying to get up to speed. Please, anyone with any thoughts or suggestions, don't be shy. I have a lot to learn. I understand I am coming from a stance of ignorance, but i hope to change that with the help of these forums!

    Have you seen SHug's video series yet? You need to know the basic pieces of gear you'll need to get started. Hammock, tarp, etc.

    All you need starts here
