    Hello from Ithaca, NY!

    Howdy!

    My name's Chris--I'm a long time browser, new-time forum member. I'm in Ithaca, NY, where I run a gear shop, run, bike, read (thus the username--love me some American lit), and of course, hang (Grand Trunk skeeter beeter). I've been hanging since January (yup, I do the winter-thing with no underquilt--not by choice!), and love it!

    Excited to meet you all and contribute to the hanging conversation.

    -Chris

    Welcome Chris. I'm from Elmira just south of you. We have several hammockers that live in town and camp quite a bit in the Finger Lakes. What's the name of your shop in Ithaca and where's it located?

    Hey Chris

    Welcome, Syracuse here. Glad that you joined, I am relatively new as well. As they say, the madness has begun.

    I work at Old Goat Gear Exchange (http://oldgoatgearexchange.com/welcome.html). Small little business, buy-sell-trade-consign and new samples, etc etc. I'm our resident hanger/runner . I hang mostly out at Shindagin Hollow, but if anyone has some good semi local spots, I'd love to hear 'em!

    Welcome to the forum. I'm putting your website on my favorites folder.
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)
