    I'm hanging around in Middle Englandshire!

    Hi to the wider community of swingers out there- now that means something ENTIRELY different where I come from, involving car keys and baskets I've made meself a Speer based hammock and had a few amazingly comfy nights, most memorably at a woodland rave with giant AV screen and treetop system... so I quickly found that a camo hideout wasn't great when theres a few hundred drunken ravers looking for bushes to urinate in, although it was great fun yelling out 'I CAN SEE YOUUUUUU!!!' when they're in a heap underneath me having tripped over the olive paracord basha supports

    Is anyone else here from the midlands UK? And anyone else using old sheepskins as underinsulation? They're great, don't slip and ubercozy

    Hi Turbo, welcome to HF from middle Englandshire

    I'd love to see a spangled ravers face when they see a body in a bag, floating in the woods

    Hello from Ohio and welcome to HF, we need more lady swingers around here, wink, wink, nudge, nudge, say no more. I could all ways use a females touch.

    I have herd of people using sheepskins in other posts but I haven't, sounds cozy.
