    Air is nothing new to me...

    ... but I'm new to HF!

    I've been hanging in my HH EXP since 2009, doing solo outings and occasional outings with my 3 cuñados in warm weather. I've been thinking about extending my reach to cold weather hanging and, like a lot of people, I found a treasure trove of piney woods goodness in Shug's videos (well done sir. You are a true connoisseur of the hanging arts and well versed in the highest expression of culinary aspiration: BBQ.)

    My home base is in Northern Virginia and I often trek alone in the Shenandoah National Park, GW National Forest, and along the AT. I'm always up for company, but since I hike mostly mid-week my buddies are all working.

    Perhaps I'll meet a few crazy hangers here. I'm looking forward to learning how y'alls get things done as well as sharing what works for me.

    Thanks to the long standing members who have created a great resource via this site!

    Welcome from FL - air safety, FAA possibly? You're not here to invoke sanctions on where and how we occupy the airspace around our campsites are you...
    Wouldn't that be something... Hangin @ 201 ft AGL... Wonder what sort of troubles that would get me trouble in

    Oh, I'm no Federale, just a worker bee. I've been daydreaming lately about getting an AR Drone to shoot some videos while hiking... wouldn't that be cool?

    Howdy neighbor. It appears we are in the same "neck of the woods."
