    Born2roam intro from Holland

    Hi there list,

    Just a quick intro for this list. Been on the yahoo hammock list (among others) but never made an effort to jump over. Too many forums to follow I thought....

    Still can't follow all the forums/digital campfires...anyway:

    My name is Johan, born in a small town in The Netherlands, where I currently still (or again) reside.

    Always been fond of outdoors life, traveling, food and (camp)fire. Later on scuba diving came into my life too.

    Been hanging since 1999. Went on a round the world trip (2003-2005) where I spent many a night in my Hennessy ULBA.

    Later on I experimented and slept in Speer hammock, (bulky) Brazilian woven hammocks, cheap Thai hammocks and a lot more.

    Only recently I had my hammock converted by 2QZQ (GREAT!) and still use my Hennessy that just got even better.

    Depending on destination and mode of transportation I either use my 8x8 JRB tarp or a Tatonka 2TC. Went from standard Hennessy setup with tree huggers to a combination of tree hugger, whoopiesling and carabiner.

    Never could get on with a sleeping mat in the hammock, even after trying and trying and DIY projects. After my Speer peapod I now almost exclusively use an under quilt and topquilt/sleeping bag. Or just a poncho liner (Brazil, Thailand e.g.)

    Guess that sums it up regarding hammocking. Have to admit, sometimes I do NOT use a hammock in the outdoors

    Any other questions/remarks.. just say so.

    Might do a lot of lurking before I can make any useful contribution though

    Grtz Johan

    Sorry for the OT part of this reaction Any (OT) help is appreciated though.

    Welcome, Johan. I moved here from the Yahoo Hammock Group, too, as did a number of us (including NotToWorry). Same sense of community pervades.
