    Just starting to Hammock Camp in Atlanta

    Hey! I'm glad I found this site. After a lot of research and countless hours of watching Shug and others hammock camping videos on YouTube, I've decided this is where I belong.

    I have to admit the one drawback Ive always had to camping was the lack of comfort while sleeping, and it seems that hammocking solves that problem.

    Anyway, Im here soaking in the knowledge and trying to better my knowledge from experienced hammock campers from this group.

    Welcome, the sleep thing is huge. Makes it a whole new experience, and that's no exaggeration.

    Welcome from North Ga. Keep your eye on the forum for a group hang up here around January. It'll be a great time to soak up some knowledge and get some hands on experience with different setups. Plus you'll meet some really great people.

    And another welcome from North Georgia. Speaking of group hangs, some of us enjoyed one at Raven Cliffs last weekend. When you have a chance to do one of these, by all means go, it is big time fun.
