    Welcome from upstate South Carolina. Online research is a fine way of building your knowledge but there is no substitute for meeting experienced hammock hangers and picking their brains. I love looking over the various setups and listening to the stories of how they got to their current setups. Of course, hammock hangers hate to brag and expound on the virtues of their gear and are very shyt as a rule.

Saved just the rainfly. Recently purchased two hammocks and am waiting on the polypro straps. My son is excited and can't wait to get them set up....neither can I really. So I'll just soak up the knowledge, ask silly questions, view Shug's videos (gotta love the Shug) a hundred times and hope I can get a third of the knowledge he has. He really makes it entertaining and fun....which is what hanging is all about anyway...right?
