    New member from NC

    Hi, I recently joined the forum. I live in Vale, NC. I am just about 30 minutes from South Mountain State Park, and about a little more than an hour from the linville gorge. I am new to hammocks but not new to hiking or camping, fishing, semi retired from hunting.I would like to outfit with a hammock and very light backpacking system and try them out in the gorgethru the summer and prep for a 4day-3night trip down the linville river gorge area. I am glad to be around other avid naturists. I am looking forward to eventually get to know everyone.

    Mountains have a dreamy way
    Of folding up a noisy day
    In quiet covers, cool and gray.

    Surely, God could have made a better way to sleep.

    Surely, God never did.
