    Hello From NC

    Hello to all tree dwellers

    I have been swinging from the trees for 6 years now. This is probably my most visited site other then the other forum that I joined earlier this year linvillegorge.net. I'm not that smart when it comes to computers so go easy on me. I'm starting to get in to the DIY stuff so I am sure in the near future I'll be picking your brains. Also I seen that there is a hang in October in Linville Gorge, I would love to be there. But do to my job and the notice I have to give to get time off I won't be able to make it to that one. Its funny though a couple of months ago I requested time off for a trip in the Gorge October 15th thru 17th, introducing my uncle to that beautiful hole in the earth and to hammocks.

    Welcome to HF! There are MANY helpful experts here to ask for advice for any DIY projects you might want to try.

    Sorry you won't be able to hang with us at the end of October. Maybe you can join us at Mt. Rogers this Winter?
