I have lurked here for awhile now and there is so much great information I figured I would finally register. I have been hiking and camping since 1985 in some sort or fashion with the Boy Scouts. I turned my passion of the outdoors into a career in the Military where I have been around the world and back again over the past 19 years. A few months back my Son joined the Cub Scouts where I am his Den Leader and we are starting to spin up on outdoor activities and camping. I look forward to making him and myself some DIY Hammocks and Tarps and teach him and his Pack the ways of fieldcraft/bushcraft. We will be exploring the wonders of the great outdoors and I will have fun watching them grow and learn into the next generation of outdoor enthusiasts.
I look forward to some great discussions and I will be asking more than a few questions in my quest to building the equipment needed for hangin' out in the woods.
