    Howdy From Texas!

    I am a relatively new hanger in the Piney Woods of East Texas. I have been suffering on the ground for years now, blaming my great discomfort on global warming making the ground harder (rather than age and increased body mass). I was dreading taking my kids camping because of the misery of another night on the ground in my tent. Hairsmith had been extolling the virtues of swinging from the trees. I finally bought a Grand Trunk SBP and took the family camping over Spring Break. It was amazing! I was actually the last one up in the morning, and I awoke refreshed and relaxed for a change. We did another trip over Easter, and I will never go back to the ground!

    The only "problem" is that the wife and kids want hammocks now for future trips!

    Hammock Forums is a great resource.

    Welcome!
    Well, Welcome to your newest insanity/addiction....
    TONS of great people and information on here. Check for an upcoming Texas Hang THIS weekend (I won't make it, but lots of other folks will.....instead, I'll set up my Warbonnent from the trees at Tyler SP where we got an orienteering event)
    Grab "The Ultimate Hang" also. Oh, and spend about 5 hours watching Shugs Videos.

    Dr. McBroom ! Welcome !!!
    Glad to see you made it to the forum. You just need to get the wife and kids to start reading some of the DIY forum. then all you will have to do is start ordering material. You will have the whole McBrood hainging in no time.

    We do need you to get some grad student working on that, how it does trees good to have hammocks hainging from them project we talked about !

    Thanks Hairsmith extraordinaire! We do need a research project on how hammocks make trees happier. It's just a matter of getting the funding together and finding a pro-hammocker wanting a PhD in Forestry!

    As for the McBroom thread injectors, I have table cloths on the way!

    Thanks for the welcome. I've read through The Ultimate Hang and enjoyed it and have been watching Shug videos with the family. Sorry Shug, but the humor of Minnesota mustard snot sickles is lost on Texas kids.

    Welcome from okla, looks like Texas is trying to overtake SC in the amount of hangers. Welcome to the HF.
