I'm Steve from Thunder Bay,ON. I've been hanging for 2 seasons now I guess and I still haven't found a core group of people who are die hard hammockers... I can't even really discuss hammocking up here as people assume you are talking about one of those mesh jobbies....
If anyone is interested PLEASE join me on facebook. The group is called "Hammock Hangers in Canada" I'm trying to take the last part of the name out, as I realize there is a huge population in the U.S. Since the Shug's of the world are down there, I hope that people are also on FB.
(I wish I was on HF from day 1, I find it really hard to follow and find info)
