    Welcome to the forums! Having someone in the family handy with a sewing machine should make the experience cheaper.

    Welcome to the hammock forum and happy birthday. Wow, your wife made you a hammock? Does she know how addicting this hobbie/way of life/no other thing matters...can be? Well she is a keeper.

    Welcome there Indy

    It is always great to see another Canadian Hanger.

    I'll bet you'll quickly realize that the light weight fabrics and silnylon to make gear and tarps is almost impossible to find in Canada.

    Looking forward to pictures of your DIY creations.

    Cheers

    Brian
