    Wink Tea Party

    Hi everyone. I'm in the New England area. I was a boy scout, Army FO, and now a dead beat husband, lol. I enjoy long walks along the beach with my family and a bottle of Jack, that end with me passed out, pants pissed, wife yelling and son crying. I do solo dirt bag camping and hiking, humping 100 Lbs. of ultra-light gear! I'm making the switch to hammocks because my knees and back have high mileage, but I'm not getting old!

    Hey welcome to the forum and just remember that when you pee in the hammock its only warm for a while, it turns cold later.

So instead of making the job safer they just changed the name . This dummy sighed right up!

    Every Fo and Fire Support Specialist I know has a bad back and is as deaf as a stone. Welcome to hanging your back will thank you.

    What kind of shuttle do you need? I am in Southern VT near the LT and AT. Perhaps I can help?
