    Welcome to HF. Good luck in the search and make sure you make it to a group hang near you, great place to see various hammock rigs and meet very interesting, likable people.

    WOW! What a welcome! haha I don't think I've ever met such a happy bunch of people. Must be all the hammock hanging making you so content with life

    And I've never had anyone make a video for me before, I got a little teary-eyed (in the most masculine way possible of course).

    I'm sure I'll feel right at home

    Bomber:
    Great to see a few faces from "home" in Scandinavia too. I live in Malmö so I'm on the border to our Danish friends as well.

    MedicineMan:
    Would you perhaps have the same interests in natural remedies as I do?


    Thanks again guys, looking forward to much forum:ing up in here.

    Hey, Swede -- Welcome!
    Here in South Texas several items made in your country are held in very high regard. I depend on my Wetterlings, Gransfors-Bruks and Fallkniven blades every day. We always think of Sweden as having very fine outdoors traditions. It's just too bad I'm afraid of snow!

    Andy:
    Yeah we've got some good knifesmiths over here for sure, especially in the north there is more of an outdoors tradition (Lappland etc.), a lot of hunters, fishermen and lumberjacks =)
    Although I'm from the very south, so we generally seldom see any real amounts of snow, it usually doesn't get cold enough. But yeah, I don't like the snow either. The winters always get me depressed and wondering why I live where I do, when I could live somewhere warm like the south of france or in Tennessee!

    Summers are holy to a people living in the dark most of the year.
