    New from Iowa

    Hi guys and gals
    I'm Matt, I live in Nevada, Iowa and am new to hanging around. I have been interested in hammocks for a while and took the plunge on the one that W00t! Offered.
    I found this forum and have been reading through the old threads. As a result of this place, I found Shug on youtube and I am now warped even more than usual heheh, I have learned a ton already.
    I screwed some eyebolts into my living room walls and am writing this during my first hang.
    Yes, those are tiedown straps holding me up, I'm waiting for my amsteel to arrive from Redden supply.

    Shug is great. Nice job jumping right in! You started in the perfect way. Something inexpensive and easy to learn on. Prepare for the onslaught of all things hammock-related.

    Oh, and welcome from Denver!
