    Hey from Florida

    Hey Yíall

    New to hanging, kind of. Attempted a hammock conversion from ground dwelling a couple of years ago. Just didnít feel right. Gonna give this hammock thing another try, so Iím doing more research and may be asking a few questions :-)

    Iíll be using a Grand Trunks Ultralight hammock with a Warbonnet ďTravel netĒ. Havenít settled on a suspension system yet, either double ring cinch straps or Whoopie slings. Maybe Iíll get it figured out this time :-)

    Welcome to the forums from Guam. There is a wealth of knowledge on this site up for grabs, all you gotta do is dive deep into here and you will find all you could ever think of. Keep your butt off the ground and warm. Welcome Arrow.

    Welcome from Gainesville!

    If you've got any specific questions, feel free to PM me. I may not know the answer, but I can probably point you in the direction to find it!

    Also, keep your eye out for group hangs coming up in the Fall; there are usually quite a few as soon as things cool down. There isn't anything like being able to see how others solve the various issues associated with this for getting ideas! The Third Annual Florida Hang is already in the planning stages for MLK weekend in January, at Buck Lake in Ocala National Forest.

    Hope to see you there!

    Welcome from South Florida. There's lots of eager help here to make it work for you this time. Feel free to ask away. The "General Hammock Talk" forum is probably a good place to start.

    We have a very active community here in Florida, once the temperature, humidity and bugs all decrease.

    Welcome from Central Florida. I'm fairly new to the boards and mostly browse the endless hammocking knowledge that resides here. The hang in Ocala sounds fun. I'm heading up to my dad's hometown in WV and hanging this weekend. Can't wait.

    Anyway, welcome again, and I hope you find the answers you're seeking.

    Welcome to the forums.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    welcome to you woodenarrows from jax -
    in my experience, if you try some once and you come back to it again then its meant to be... it may just be that you didn't have the chance to tweak it to your unique demands...

    keep trying, keep learning and keep hanging...
    as its already been said there's a wealth of knowledge here and there's prob a million different ways to do the same thing, so keep being thirsty for knowledge

    Welcome to HF from CF!
    Maybe we'll see you at the Florida Hang in January. You should have your suspension worked out by then.

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.
