    Hello... and thanks!

    Hi there!

    I've been lurking around here for a little while. Learning a bunch, but starting to feel a little stalker-ish, so I thought I'd better say 'hi'.

    I hadn't really intended to get into the hammock thing. I started off poking around youtube for a diy tarp pattern and stumbled across one of Shug's tarp videos. Well, one video lead me to another (and another...), and I eventually ended up here.

    I got kind of side-tracked on the tarp mission, and made myself a double-layer diy hammock from the patterns on DiyGearSupply. My brother liked it so much I ended up giving it to him and making myself another one.

    I still don't have a tarp, but that's OK. The material is finally on order and should be here early next week. Now I'm researching TQ/UQ patterns...

    Thanks again for all the DIY articles and advice on here. I'm generally not a real talkative person, but I'll try to give back where I can and quit being such a stalker.

    I found Shug while searching for stoves and got hooked hard. Welcome aboard.

    Thanks! I've been to Vancouver on a business trip before, but that's about the extent of my travels up north. The highlight was getting to see a Canucks game while I was there. Gotta love Canadian hockey fans!

    I'd love to see what the rest of the country is like some day.

    Don't fight it... It only gets worse when you do.
    Seriously, though, it's amazing how much information you can find these days for making things yourself. There are a lot of really ingenious people out there.

    Love the forum name. Kind of fits me, too.
    I need to come up with something more interesting. I think I'm the only one here using my real name. (Now I feel like I'm the one being watched. )

    This is exactly how I ended up being here. Welcome to HF from the Islands Philippines!
