Now, the last thing I want to do is to seem to erect any sort of barrier to the current seamless blend of anglo-american brotherly/sisterly harmony....
...but, as the glory that is Hammock Forums is a US driven operation, I thought that it might be a nice idea to have a little slice of Blighty for us Brits to moan about the lack of wild spaces in our little island, or about how much it costs to import some of the cool stuff everyone talks about on this here chatscape. So I propose a UK hammock thread for anyone who has a particularly stiff upper lip and who wants to talk about stuff that is specific to those of us who just get confused when we hear 'Our Country 'tis of Thee.'
We can talk about the weather, and crumpets, and only fools and horses, and peanut butter and jam sandwiches...
Actually, the main thing I am interested in doing is some kind of joint hang-type trip over on this side of the pond. I would very much love to get over stateside for one of our brethren's regular ventures but, alas, funds be tight! So Dartmoor, or Scotland, or somewhere else.
So whaddayall think? Worth a shot?
I'll meet you all in the dog and chicken pub by the cider press at the bottom of Nempnet-Thrubwell high street and we can all have some warm beer and scampi fries, play snooker and eat pickled eggs (actually that sounds a lot more appealing than it was meant to).
