    Swingin in Michigan....

    That sounds like some thread title on one of those ADULT sites....

    New to the trees here in Michigan, my buddy and I actually spent the past weekend kayaking down the Au Sable River for three nights with our first $5 hammocks from Wally World, homemade toole bugnets, and cheapo tarps from Menards. Took the first night to get the bugs, I mean kinks, worked out but after that it got better and better.... Had serious rain night two and stayed dry as a bug under our tarps and in our hammocks.... Rained so hard it pushed two tent campers out their tents at 5:00am to pack stuff up and call it quits.... I was impressed with how even the cheapo tarp with bungee tie-outs took the rain and wind... Can't wait to make a really fly for the rig....

    Already gained a great deal of knowledge from all the posts here and can't wait to get the sewing machine out and see what other things i can create....

    I'M LOVIN' IT... Now if I can just get the girlfriend to appreciate the benefits of a hammock...
    Happy Hangin'

    That which does not kill me has made a grave tactical error.

    Welcome from another Michiganian. Michigan rivers are great to travel and hang.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Sounds like you had a good trip and some where along the way. You were bitten by the hammock bug. Welcome to the club.
