    Hey Hey from Central Florida

    Hey Everyone,

    My name is Jason, my friends call me Jay. I live NE of Orlando FL, near the Little Big Econ state forest. I spend a lot of hang time deep in the Jungles along the river. I enjoy all aspects of the outdoors including Fishing, Boating, Hiking, etc.

    I have been watching "Shugemery" on youtube for a while now and enjoyed his videos. Each time I have a question about all things hammock. I just do a quick search for the answers online and the results always bring me back here. So I did my duty and joined.

    I look forward to talking with you all. I am non-abrasive and I keep (Radio/ Televised News) controversy of any type out of forum threads. I enjoy laughing a lot. Jokes and Jokes until it's time to get serious if need be.

    I hope I can bring some ideas, fun and useful information to this group.



    Jay

    Welcome from Kissimmee! Yeah, Shug is a hoot, he's responsible for several of us being here. I don't get out to the Little Big Econ state forest as much as I would like, I usually hit the Ocala National Forest. Guess I should get out there more often.

    Howdy from the Space Coast. We did a very nice paddle on the Little Econ last year. It was amazing how "away from it all" it seemed even though we were riding right through some suburban areas. You're lucky to be so close by.....

    Welcome from Clearwater! My first Shug vid I saw was him camping with his bud in MN with temp at -29. That was way before I found this forum. I found it amazing these guys could camp in a hammock at that temp. At the time I was researching hennessey hammocks.

    Lots of good stuff and people too. Lot of hangers in your area!
