Jester attends her first Hammock Hang put on by the Palmetto State Hangers called the Spring Swing. Tune in to hear some tips for beginning Hammockers and more!
For a couple years now Jester has been interested in learning more about hammocks and switching to a hammock set up instead of tenting when she backpacks. Paul Collins (Skunkape) invited Jester to meet up at the Palmetto State Hangers "Spring Swing" to check out some hammocks and learn directly from people who have been hammock hanging for years!
Tune in as Jester chats with AJ Glenn (Phoenix) and Skunkape about what beginners should look for when researching hammocks, what companies they rely on for Hammock gear, and they also put to rest some fears Jester has about hammocking.
