Wild Mike here ... well wildmike4 was the only one close enough. I joined awhile ago and then life got in the way. Now I'm back and have just bought a Skeeter Beater Pro from heescha (I hope it's on it's way).
I'm going to be 57 this Sept and am a Scoutmaster for a small troop of 5 boys. We camp once a month and I've been thinking for awhile now that hammock camping looks comfy and easy to set up camp with. For a long time I used a large Coleman Tent with a cot for my sleeping shelter (well I still have them). then a couple of years a built a small sleeping Teardrop trailer that I used for 2 summer camps. I sold it this year and took the plunge into the wonderful world of hammock camping.
I purchased the material to make a tarp (OK and also the Wallyworld nylon to make a hammock with, but with the price of the SBPro it wasn't worth making it.) so the tarp will be my first project.
I have met with Canoebie and hopefully I'll make the Midwest Paddle trip he and the group are planning.
So ... that's me ... well that's only part of me ... buha ha ha haaaa
