    Well hello there!

    Hi Folks. I'm a newbie HF lurker living in Calgary, Canada, originally from London, England. No gear yet, but I am really grateful for the videos from Shug as well as the book "The ultimate hang" by Derek Hansen, both of which have really helped in my learning.

    Be patient with my dumb-*** questions and explain everything to me like you might a 5 year old child ...

    Agreed - Shug and the Ultimate Hang are perhaps the best two sources for learning hammocking anywhere!

    No question is dumb, not knowing is just an opportunity for growth!
