    Hello From Denmark

    A little about me.
    Name is Michael
    Have children aged 5-6-9-12 who all just joined the local scout team.
    Since I, as a kid to was a scout, I've chosen to go along with being leader of our local scout team.

    I've been through two major back surgeries. So after our first camping trip in a tent, I was about to throw in the towel. :-( Could NOT find rest...

    when I came home i Googled hammocks, and found Shugh's amazing videos on youtube.

    Now I just need to find the right system ..

    I see that there are other Danes here! ... Super.

    Welcome, Michael. You'll find the info that you need here. I'm sorry about your back. Certainly you're a brave person by taking the scouts camping!

    Welcome to HF. Hammocks will treat your back just fine and you should not have any problems.

    Welcome aboard Michael, nice to have yet another dane here.
    You´ll find a bunch of happy, dedicated, friendly souls here and all the good advice you need regarding hammocks(and a lot other stuff aswell)

    I´m living/sleeping in my hammock fulltime, also because of back surgery(only one so far - hooping to keep it that way!)Once you come hang with us - theres no turning back to the hard cold ground

    Hejsa Michael,

    Glad to see you have found this resource for you and your scouts. My name outside the forum is Jorgensen, a good Danish name (or so I have been told).

    It's popping in Danes almost every day now

    I am starting think that Google done something fishy in Denmark.
    Like, what ever you type , your hits consist of just Shug video's or something?

    Where are all the Swedes ?
    Planing for Läggträsk maybe

    I'm blabbing, right ?

    So back to topic then:
