    Hello from Augusta Ga

    I have been hanging out here for a little while and decided it was time to introduce myself. I have learned alot and even made a few diy projects. I was on the AT last march and a couple of thru hikers were in hammocks and it intrigued me. I bought an eno singlenest from a local outfitter. It was comfy but a little too small so I found this site. I have since made a bigger diy gatherened end and a blackbird clone. Although not perfect by any means it sure is cool to have the footbox, shelf, and bugnet. I am saving now for the real thing and trying to lighten my load a little. Just wanted to throw a huge thanks to all the wonderful people here. Hopefully I will be able to help people here as much as you have helped me but for now just learning myself.

    Welcome from across the river in SC. Hope to meet you at a hang. Check out the calendar. Mar. 16th hang at Huntington beach will be great, come join us. You can check out a lot of different set-ups there. Everyone will be happy to help in anyway we can, and we'd also like to check out your DIY hammock.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    Thanks for the invite. I will be working so cannot make that but I looked for it on the calendar and didn't see it. I never knew the calendar was there so maybe I am not doing something right. If it is posted there let me know so I can figure out how to work it. I would like to keep an eye out for future events.

    Sorry, it isn't on the calendar. (need to put it there) Go to the Forum tab and then to Hangouts, Campouts & trip Planning and look for the SC Spring Swing by MBCruzin, and read up on it. It will be a nice one, maybe you can come visit for a few hours.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    Hi there Jbyrd. Welcome from Ohio. Glad you found HF; what a great place! Lots of good people to learn from, although you're already a veteran DIYer.

    Enjoy,
