    Hanging in the Hudson Valley

    Howdy fellow hangers,

    I am am a newbie hammocker and former ground-dweller. I'm around technology a lot in my job (server/system administrator) and to offset this I like to get outdoors whenever I can.

    My "hobby" budget is very limited (a wife and a 5-year old son will do that) so I have to acquire gear in bits and pieces. Right now I got started with a Equip travel hammock from Walmart, which surprisingly holds my 300lbs up pretty well. I modded it a little bit, retying the ropes at the ends and replacing the steel links with a couple CAMP nano 'biners. Right now I'm hooking it up to some towing straps, but I have ordered the ENO Atlas straps.

    Heya,

    I'm in Kerhonkson (Ulster County) which is across the river and north of you a bit, right across the mountain from New Paltz.

    Nice to see another Hudson Valley-ite

    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! I'm a newb myself. From MD but I just moved back to MD in '09. Before that I was in New Paltz/Newburgh for 6 years, and worked in Fishkill. I know exactly where Kerhonkson is! Beautiful area.

    Welcome to the forum. I'm from Cohoes and go to the Adirondacks often. But the Jerzybears have introduced me to the Catskills. There is also a hang in Mass. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=55309 . If you get a chance come on up.
