    New from Mass

    Hi all.

    Came here thanks to "Skypainter" ( at LL Bean, Burlington. )

    I'm a longtime Scout and Scouter, and have spent all of those years sleeping on the ground. I'd say Chaaaz has got me about 80% convinced to give a hammock a try.

    I just had a backpacking trip go south with a way-to-heavy tent, so I'm eyeing this with some hope.

    Hope to be a regular on these forums, should I get my act together.

    Welcome to HF from the Berkshires! Check out the Winter NEHHA hang, there is a link in my signature. Groups hangs are one of the best and fastest way to learn about the hammocking way of life!

    Welcome from another in Mass. I will second the NEHHA hang this January. There will be a lot of us as well as a lot of different setups. You can look at them all and probably try some as well. Come for a visit or the weekend.
    Also welcome from another scouter, troop 705 out of Chesterfield Ma. There are a lot of us here.

    Welcome to the forum. I hope to see you at the winter hang.
