Thread: Hello From GA

  1. #1

    Hello From GA

    Hi all, I am planning on getting a camping hammock, and I joined on the advice of another forum member to get a perspective on what make would be best for my needs.
    I first 'discovered' hammock camping almost by mistake. I had a cheap $5.00 Walmart nylon hammock, and I slept inside my sleeping bag in that hammock up in a national park in WY 25 years ago.
    Now I want to get back into camping and am ready for something a little more,uhm, sophisticated?

    You were brought to the right spot. There is a ton of knowledge here and plenty of friendly people to help you with just about any type of advise.

    Just be careful not to over dose. Take a little bit at a time. Cruise the stickies and set aside time to watch the videos.
