    Talking Risk's back

    I'm back. I did 5 years in Texas, now back in Ohio and all excited about the AT again. I had a wonderful 4 days of great weather in the Shenandoah NP across Veteran's day and have been reading a lot since then.

    Hammock tech has changed a lot in the last few years. I have some catching up to do! I was just watching a couple YouTubes by Sgt Rock. UCRs, Dynaglide, Zingit! Man do I have a lot to catch up on.

    Ditto!......................
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Welcome back Risk. Like Shug, I was inspired early on by your techniques. I still mention them when people here ask about something or other and I recall "Risk tried that years ago". Though I never did find "windbumpers described on another page".

    welcome home Risk. You're a legend in these parts. You'll be happy I think to see how much DIY ingenuity has been expressed in these forums.

    Wow! So exciting to have you on the forums again. You were part of my top 5 sources for hammock camping info when I got started.
    You're gonna need a bigger hammock
