    Thought I'd just say Hi!

    Hey all, I'm Ryan, I just found this forum after hearing someone rave about hammock camping. I only once have tried to sleep in a hammock, a cheapo one, which didn't work out so well to say the least.

    I can really see the advantage of a "peapod" type of bag, because there is no compression underneath you. I have posted my new homemade hammock in this thread and would like your feedback.

    If anyone has a good video on the specifics of how to setup a hammock or talking about hammock sag, I need help getting more comfortable in a hammock by adjustments, let me know.

    I see allot of you are from my neck of the woods, North Carolina, do you all have meet-ups?

    Where in NC, we got some folks up in the mountains, a few in the triad, some more in the triangle and a few down east.

    Welcome Ryan
    Keep tuning into and reading this forum you will learn so much.It does take time to find the correct hammock/s tarp/s insulation to suit your needs but a little patience and its well worth it once it all starts to click.

    It would be cool to have a "meet up" soon. There are quite a few folks pretty close by. You're down in Charlotte near Hooch.
