    hello from NC!

    hiya folks.

    Noobage from eastern, NC here.
    I ordered a cheap hammock on a whim a few weeks ago(dang it, youtube). I then purchased some whoopie slings, ridge line, a couple carabiners........I practiced hanging my rig a couple times, and lounged about in total comfort for a few hours. I have yet to spend a night out, but can't wait. I ordered an underquilt today, as soon as that sucker arrives I'm hitting the trees!

    I figure I have about 18 times the price of that cheap hammock wrapped up in this venture now, go big or go home, right? and besides, I hate being cold.

    I look forward to hopefully learning from you guys here.

    take it easy,

    Chad.

    Welcome!

    From another NC NooB
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. ― Henry David Thoreau

    I saw the thread for this last night and was enticed, but I can't give a definite yet, April is a busy month this year..... birthdays, anniversary, slingshot gathering(and that's just me) I know my wife has alot planned too....dog shows, dog racing, family visits,etc....... , but maybe if it all works out I could swing through.

    Hi Gunner, I lived in EI for a few years growing up, and went to high school in Morehead for a little while.

    Then you've been by my old place, little yellow house on the hill across from the SC ems station on 210. Small world, isn't it? Hope you make it out this way one day. I enjoyed my time at the beach, but I'm happy I left.
