    Hey From Portland, OR!

    The name's Dedominick. I hopped over from BushCraftUSA, where I am currently a supporting member. I have been lurking for quite some time. I thought I couldn't handle following two forums, but I was sucked in by Shug's infectiously enthusiastic videos, Just Jeff's extensive and informative webpage, and the terribly informative and creative posts that SO many people contribute to this community.

    I wanted to thank the forum for the help thus far, I've really enjoyed getting the hang of things and hope to contribute to the community in a somewhat meaningful way!

    I will post some pictures from my first overnight hang at a gorgeous spot in the coastal range outside Portland soon, for now here is my virgin hang in a DIY with larkshead knots and DIY whoopie slings. It is a bit short for my liking, but gave me the bug... Sorta looking forward to some Dutch clips too

    Again thanks all!


    Ripstop thread and 1/8 amsteel


    Knots after folding and stitching


    Whoopie!!



    No ridgeline yet, and I borrowed from the slack lining/climbing bag for suspension.



    first hang!

    Welcome, from Salem. As you have been lurking, you may know there is an active contingent in this area. Many others in the Portland area, and more to the South.

    Yeah another guy from SE Portland who just joined and I were going to try to get some time to go to the most recently passed hang, somewhere out toward the upper Clack it looked like. I'd love to try to catch the next one, I want to make a silnylon tarp w/ the silicon coating before I do any winter/ fall camping though.

    Welcome to the forum from west Texas.

    Nice, quick setup. I occasionally find myself over at the Bushcraft USA site. Cool stuff there.
