    Which video to recommend to first time Shug viewers

    Okay Shug fans, help me out. Since I'm new to hammock hanging I have spent some time telling my friends about hammocks and answering questions. Invariably Shug's videos come up as I try to describe hammock camping and then try to describe Shug, to the un-initiated. So I put it to the forum: what is the best "intro to hammocking and all things Shug" video? If you could only pick one, which one would it be?

    Haha, Mike is right, just watch them all. Start with his How-To for Noobs Series then watch the rest

    Oh I know all to well about watching all of them. My intent is to find the ideal starter video. I'm sure once they see one they'll be in for more.

    Any video where he uses his Nettie pot. But seriously I think part one of the hammock how to series would be good.

    I started with one in he middle by accident and then started at very beginning. I feel if you start at the beginning you will ready get to know him.

    this question is irelevent as you can not stop after watching ANY of his videos and must continue to the end of all of them.

    Shug is different than what you might expect if you are a first time viewer. Once you figure out where he is coming from he grows on you. I always watch for new videos from Shug now.

    I started with the Hammock Hanging How To Part 1. These are a great intro to all things Shug and give lots of great pointers, tips, and tricks for newbies to "The Hammock".
