    Greetings from Aalesund, Norway!

    Hi!

    I am Andreas. A 1985 model type married man with two kids.
    Whenever I don't work on remodeling our house or other mundane tasks, I go hammock camping with one or more friends. Generally, we go for rediculous food over a bonfire and good views.

    I came here to learn more about hammocking. I try to have a DIY approach towards things, and make due with what I have, but I am constantly improving my gear; that in itself is a hobby.

    Look forward to learning heeps!
    oh. And Shug is to blame for me being here. Learned so much from that guy! Whooo buddy!

    A small gallery of my hammocking so far. all the way from a crappy hammock at the barracks during a forest fire effort to last weekends wonderful trip

    More Norwegians! Welcome! Thanks for sharing your pictures. Looks like you and your friends get out a fair amount. That last sunset picture is gorgeous.

    Oh I just might! I have the massdrop quilt, and I will look for pointers on making that into a UQ at some point. (although I have already made an attempt at it.)

    Was performing on a cruise in Norway circa 2000 and loved it. Did not get to do any backpacking but the fjords blew my mind.

    I'm gonna go ahead and keep blowing your mind. This is from a hammock trip last october. The trip was 20 minutes driving from my house and a brisk 40 minute hike.
    We are genuinely spoilt with our view here.

    Welcome from a split Swedish/Norwegian family (you can imagine the discussions). DIY one of the reasons I joined this great forum also.

    Happy hanging to you! Skål!
