    Hello from Haworth, Yorkshire, UK

    Hi all,

    I have been lurking & learning from this site for quite a while, so though i better get round to introducing myself

    I live with in a small village in Yorkshire, UK called Haworth, famous for Emily Bronte. It's right on the edge of the moors with plenty of small woods around to hang in.

    I've been hammocking for a few yeas now, with my kit evolving over time, i now have a DD hammock, Hennesy hex tarp, down underblanket and a Nonok down bag, all carried in MOLLE 2 / Alice pack hybrid. Hammock is strung on homemade whoopie slings - thanks again to this forum

    Anyway, that's me - so hi

    James

    Welcome to the forum James,

    I would love to see a picture or two of those woods.
    I'll bet it's very beautiful.
