    I appreciate the focus on hammocks! I know answering questions can take a lot of time and focusing on hammocks allows the experienced people to spend their time helping others with hammock info that we simply can't get anywhere else. I always appreciate their quick responses to my questions.

    I can get other camping/hiking answers at other places, as mentioned above.

    The links suggestion is a good one and will help lead people to where they need to go to get camping/hiking answers.

    thanks yall. i have to agree w/ the last 3 posts.
    if we let conversations about the other aspects of camping/backpacking (& all kinds of other things) to go on at length, we will loose our main objective here at Hammock Forums.

    one thing we could do is to have a well written explanation of why we keep the focus on hammocks here that is always available on the home page so that it's easy to see or to point people back to if they have missed it.

    I have to say that I dont frequent other "Hiking/Backpacking" forums...Yeah...I got a membership over at White Blaze...but I dont know anyone over there...Hammock Forums is "HOME" for me...and in my quest for light weight culinary cuisine lead me to ask yall...who else would I ask about great hammocking foods than the ones who hammock? lol...

    Thanks again for such a great community of folks.

    I would suggest that any thing "Non Hammocking" be post in that catagory...I belive that covers the bases.

    Just so I could know...last night I took one bag of "Success" rice, one cheesey taco mix and about a cup or so of ground beef (left overs from tacos the other evening) and put them in a gal. zip loc bag...I added 2 cups of boiling water and removed the air...I wrapped the bag in a few dish towels and set it on the counter...It took about 20 minutes for the water to absorb...I then spooned the "Burrito" mix onto a warmed shell and that was supper....I now know what to expect when on the trail...I am thinking about dehydrating some burger to see how it re-constitutes in this mix.

    Dehydrated beef reconstitutes very well with the Freezer Bag Cooking method.

    I'm not trying to single you out on this one, just taking the opposite view. I just think that once it starts it would get out of control.

    Plus do we really want a large non-hammocking group coming to the site and talking about non-hammocking things? It wouldn't be at first, but would come with all of the threads showing up on Google searches. Then it would turn into the mess that is WB instead of the great resource that is HF. Sorry to Rock and Troll on this, just calling it like I see it.

    Maybe like was suggested in a more liberal links section listing a lot of non-hammock resources and things they discuss.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I dont feel singled out...lol...I agree with the statements at hand and would not want to see this site degraded to that of other forums. I appreciate the value of one's ideas here and know 100% that if I have a question...hammocking or Non hammocking...that there's a place for it here...I agree that the forum is where it needs to be and no addition needs to be made.
