    Howdy from Charlotte, NC

    Hey everyone! I'm a new hammock camper from Alabama currently living in Charlotte, NC. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, I had only done the occasional car camping with friends (and tents). Being stuck inside made me realize how much I wanted to really get out there, so I started doing some casual research about how I wanted to do it. Thanks to folks like sintax77, Shug, and communities like this one, I settled on hammock camping. I ordered a Dutchware Chameleon, cobbled together some gear handed down by my grandad, and set off for my first solo overnight hike/camp at South Mountains State Park. I loved it. The solitude, the effort, the refuge of the hammock after a long day of miles - superb.

    So now I'm joining the forum proper, and looking forward to sharing trip reports and more. Thanks for reading!

    Thanks, TallPaul! I'm grateful that the city is so close to so many excellent state parks. My biggest regret since moving to CLT has been how long it took me to really start exploring them. At least I'm rectifying that now!
