    And a third welcome from SC. There are plenty of trees around so go out and make use of them. Try some different hammocks and you will soon find out that you are like the rest of us - addicted.

    Don't argue with the alligator until after you cross the river.

    welcome to the madness from down on the coast

    Getting your wife liking hammocks is good as now you can use the excuse you are buying new gear for her to keep her comfortable (unless of course she is into pink camo)

    If those tie straps you're using now are made of polyester, you're good to go. If they're nylon you may want to upgrade or you might find your butt on the ground. Harbor Freight has these lashing straps that work great. They're cheap and light, you just need to cut off the metal buckle.

    As for the blue tarp, give it a try. I went out my first time with two shower curtains taped together. The grommets I put in tore, but it worked and I learned more from the experience than in all my time planning on the forums.

    Welcome from CT and get out there and hang!

    Welcome from NC!
    I second the notion that attending a group hang is a great way to meet friends and experience other gear
    - Loki,

    "Climb the mountains and get their good tidings.
    Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees.
    The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy,
    while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn."
