    Greetings From N. Wisconsin

    Even though I joined a month ago, never got around to an intro. I live about as far North in WI as you can get without crossing into the UP of MI.

    I bought an old style Eureka Chrysalis last year and have yet to use it. I have seen some interesting mods of the Chrysalis on here and will most likely start making changes after I use it a few times.

    Also recently bought a Hammaka 2 person on Overstock.com and have taken to modifying it right out of the bag. I am having fun learning all of the various suspensions. An ingenious group here.

    I like to backpack, canoe camp, and hunt out of a backpack. I'm set-up for all seasons, and recently acquired a small wood stove and equipment for Winter camping. I've also built a few stoves out of stainless and titanium.

    I look forward to learning from everyone here. Where is a good place to buy material, both strap and rope for slings? Thanks.

    Welcome to HF! There are a lot of great places to get rope and straps. I like Backwoods Daydreamer a lot and arrowhead Equipment too.

    Rbinhood, Welcome to the forum. What is that hammock all about?

    Fronky: Thanks. I had already been on the Arrowhead site. I have looked at so much over the last few days that it is all running together in my head like mush.

    Welcome, driven through your area many times. Good friend lives in Ashland, drive through UP to get there. I want to retire up there. Paddled lots of rivers in WI as well, lots of hanging opportunities.

    Shug: Hunted MN deer season last year for the 1st time. Great experience, shot a nice buck. One less deer that you might run into.

    Ber & Tumbleweed: Where at in WI?

    canoebie: Like the Lao Tzu quote. I paddle a stripper that I built. Just acquired an Adirondack guideboat.
