    Slacker from VA

    Well I joined the forum over a year ago & realized that I have yet to post!
    It must say somethign about thses forums because I have never had the need to ask anything & always found an answer for any question I had.
    I've been hammock camping about 3 years or so & currently hang in a modded HH. I'm an avid hunter & fisherman who firmly believes in recovering some of those skills our forefathers used on a daily basis (some folks may call it bushcraft).
    I reside a couple miles outside of DC and am a computer nred for the local Government. I'm sure you can understand why I camp

    Looking forward to interacting more here.

    -EG

    Welcome! Interact at the MAHHA hang this spring! You've probably seen the posts but I like to extend the invite. Especially to people in the area. And it would be great to have a bushcrafter there. You'd have a lot to show us I'm sure. And the variety of hammocks and DIY gear and people at the hangs is fantastic. Think about it!

    Good to hear from you, EG. My home base isn't too far from you, though I'm usually down here in FL. Hope we get to meet up some time.

    Sorry you live near DC. I lived there for 25 + years and couldn't wait to leave. I have lots of winter hammocking planned. I will go out tomorrow for a couple days in sub 20 degree weather. I love that peapod the only way to beat the cold.

    EvilGemini, Welcome from a fellow Washingtonian! Hope you didn't lose power during Snowmageddon (round 1) or Snowmageddon Reloaded (the sequel). As HappyCamper suggested, please, do join us at the spring MAHHA hang. I went to my first one fall 2009. Hooch, Dancer, and I started a few days before the hang to backpack the MD section of the AT. I had a great time, learned a lot, won a JRB pack cover (woohoo!), and took home some recycling! OTOH if you come it'll decrease my chances of winning something in the raffle.. so never mind, you're not invited.
