    I know how you feel mike. Been here a couple of weeks and I am not that far behind. Got my first 100 feet of Amsteel in today and made two woopy slings, one at work and one at home. I have the material for a tarp but am waiting on friend to bring back my thread injector. My first hammock that costs more than 5 bucks should get delivered on Thursday.

    And I am thinking about getting some leather working stuff again to help out a guy in the want to buy area. It is a good crazy. I think...

    Alcohol stoves and portable wood-burning stoves are next. Check out Shug's videos on his deep-cold stove tests! You'll be having "breakfast from the hammock" in no time!!

    Sure, it's an addiction, but hey- it's cool, you're fine, you can quit anytime you want.

    You can, right? RIGHT?

    After 33 years of more and more rules about what you can't do and how much they want you to pay to not do it, I've had enough of this place.

    Yea, we'e already bought the land, just getting some things tied up here and putting a little more cash in our pockets before we head out. Gonna live in the travel trailer while we build and now plan on spending a lot of time in the hammock relaxing after a day of home building.
