    Hi All - Former lurker from the UK

    Hey all,

    After some expert lurking I've finally 'crossed the barrier'!

    First got myself a taste for the hammock on an exped. in 2001. Since then I've been a ground-dweller until I had the chance to get back to the jungle...

    One BOGOF from Hennessy later and we were hanging in the jungle (for me again, first time for the lady).

    I had to join up once I had a hammock geek breakdown and orderd a bunch of gear to finesse the hammock ahead of another trip.

    Anyone else out there from UK and/or hammocked in Borneo?

    Chris

    (on account of not finding a wave).

    Hope I'll be out in the wilds of Norfolk in a month or so - will try and get some photos online.

    Lurking over - time to contribute!

    Good to see some other local representation (even though I'm originally a Brummie).
