    Welcome aboard from Florida. At the time I found the forum we had lost a family member. Having hammocks and the forum for an escape kept me going. Hopefully it will be the same for you.

    Welcome to the HF family from Statesville, NC. The woods will help the mind and soul be at ease, the hammack will let the body be at ease. Both together is complete nirvana.

    thanks for the encouragement. Maybe we can link up sometime and do some hicking together

    Its a stressful job indeed but hanging from the trees seems like a good way to de-stress.

    Bigbaby:
    Welcome to HF from BigBama. Glad you got to see the beauty and peace that can be found in the woods. My job is not as stressful as yours but I can totally relate and understand how you felt on your first trip back into the woods. Good luck in your quest for peace.
