    I've been lurking around this site for a few months and decided to join now that I'm on summer vacation. This is a great site, and I've gleaned much useful information from its pages. I remember sleeping in a hammock (the nylon net type) on a backpacking trip with my dad back in 1979. I kind of got away from it as I didn't do much summer backpacking while I focused much of my time on rock climbing. Now I'm returning to backpacking and getting in to the whole "light is right" thing. I really enjoy making/inventing my own gear. I've posted a few of my hammock pictures. My next projects are a second underquilt and a second bug-net for my new diy hammock.

    Welcome to the fold. From looking at your gear pictures I would say that you a really good start on things. That DIY bug is very addicting. The more you make, the you want to make. Have fun and keep us posted.
