    not so noob

    Hiya,
    I've had my HH for... must be 2 years now and I love it. Don't remember where I got the idea to go off the ground but I'll never go back. Found Shugs vids on YT and they led me here. Now I can't wait to get my hammock ready for some winter camping. I'm gonna try and make a new tarp and some quilts so I'm sure I'll be asking loads of questions. Anyway, glad I found this forum, y'all seem so positive and helpful. Hopefully someday I'll be able to return the favor.
    Benny

    Welcome! Can't wait to see pics of your winter kit once you decide on it!

    I should also mention in the interest of full discloser that I'm a recovering performer. I haven't been on a unicycle in 15 or so years and I only pick up the clubs maybe once a week. I still do card tricks when pressured to but it's not something I pull out at the bar unless I'm REALLY bored. I do tend to juggle tools every now and then but that's more just to see if it is possible to juggle something like a running Sawzall that's still plugged in (it is)

    Welcome to HF. Juggling a running Sawzall would truly be a thing to see! I suppose it would really force you concentrate.

    it had a short 4" or 6" blade, I had to tape the trigger, and I held it by the collar end since the cord made it awkward but sorta acted like a pivot. I only have a cordless right now but when I get a gig that has a corded I'll make a vid.
