    WV newbie - and I hate you all.

    I was all happy and content in my 2013 AT thru-hike planning. I had settled on a nice tarp tent and was preparing myself for several shakedown excursions to prove it out.

    Then I found the hammock thread on Whiteblaze, which subsequently lead me to Hammock Forums...

    Now I get to spend more time and effort slogging through blogs and forum threads, while simultaneously watching hours of youtube vids to learning all I can about hanging. My brain is ready to starting splitting at the seams.

    But I will live, and have learned so much from the helpful hangers out there.

    For that you have my thanks.

    Welcome from Florida. Don't feel badly about your original choice of shelter. There's nothing wrong with a tarptent - except for the sloping, rocky ground filled with roots beneath it. Oh yeah, and it doesn't rock you to sleep at night
