    Howdy from the Buckeye State

    Hi there,
    New to hammock camping, but not new to DIY. Thats what led me here rolling my own. Ordered from diygearsupply very helpful. I've made stompboxes for my guitar and analog synthesizers and sequencers, made my own knives including a switchblade, just love making stuff. So here I am looking forward to learning from you all and enjoying some backing packing and camping. If I ever stop buying and making gear.

    Pics of my gathered hammock in the DIY section soon.

    Welcome from a fellow central Ohioan. Do you think you can take a break from gear making around June 22nd for a hang up at Mohican?

    Diva and some of the others have the DIY bug pretty bad and Luke makes his living at it so you'd have lots to talk about.

    Welcome, from Ohio too +1 on what Bannerstone said, mark June 22 on your calendar and come out out to a group hang, it's not too far from you. Great place to ask questions, see different set-ups and meet great people and make lasting friendships. Even if your hammock isn't done yet, bring your tent, or just visit a bit.

    We try to do a hang every month, so keep checking the calendar link above, which will lead you to more information. Who knows about July and August though...it may be a bit too hot.
