    Hellooooo from South Africa!!!!

    Howzit guys,
    The name is Cacher and I am from Port Elizabeth, South Africa. I just joined, after I managed to get my paws on a discounted "Ticket to the Moon" hammock which I am planning on using on bike trips. The plan is to test it out tonight in my backyard and see how it goes, but after seeing all the DIY stuff on here, the gears in my head are already spinning....

    welcome to the madness.

    I have been to the northern end of Africa but no the southern end, maybe one day.

    Welcome from a cold and dark Sweden!
    I guess you have pretty hot weather "down there" right now?
