Hello all. Name's Steve, and I have been kinda lurking here for a little while. I saw a link to this site (HeadChange4u's DIY Hennessy thread) on a motorcycling forum and was instantly interested. I had never actually seen a camping hammock before and it looked like a really cool idea. Since then, I have been working on doing a DIY hammock for myself. I do a lot of motorcycle touring, and a lot of times it's more of a hassle to set up a tent, air mattress, and the whole works, so I thought I would give this a try.
I built my first DIY hammock a couple weeks ago and have been tweaking it since. I will post details and pics in the DIY forum in a little bit. Anyways, I thought I would introduce myself and say hi.
Welcome from just down the road in spokane! I used to live in Missoula actually. I worked at sportsmans warehouse for a couple years there when it was still sportsmans. Careful with DIY thing, it tends to be catchy. What sort of bike do you ride?
I currently ride a 2006 Harley Road King Custom. Previously I had a Honda ST1100 and miss the hell out of it!
I am starting to see that the DIY thing is catchy. My neighbors probably think I am nuts cause I have been outside almost every evening for the past 2 weeks tying things to the trees, untying them, retying them, etc... I still have to work on the tarp, so that's my next project before I move onto the "second" DIY hammock.
Looking forward to seeing your pics. Welcome to HF!
Welcome to the HF madness from Canada!
I used to live in Missoula as well, even attended Hellgate.
Another Missoula Motorcyclist here.
We need to go on a ride sometime! Send me a PM. Would sure be fun to hit up Lolo Pass or something. Have 2 bikes, DRZ400-SM and KLR650, trying to sell the KLR after picking up the DRZ.
Have a Ticket To The Moon Double right now. Warbonnet Black Bird on the way. Looking at doing some camping from the bike this summer.
