    New Dude from UK

    Hi Folks,

    Just joined today & based in the UK though spent about 6 of the last 16 years in North America.

    I teach Bushcraft in between projects & love to hammock camp when I can, so was really glad to find the forum here.

    I currently make old military-style Zoot Tops from British Army parachutes & looking to make some good, strong lightweight hammocks from the same materials, so any guidance on patterns, methods, etc is always welcome.

    By the way, in case anyone is heading to the UK on a trip, then I'm always up for a brew (coffee/tea) if you're passing. I'm about 50 miles NW of Birmingham & close to the Welsh border, so drop on in if you're in the area.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Hi Royal,
    You're in good company then. A close pal just returned there this week as a PSC & even he hasn't got one yet, but as mentioned when I get seamstress issue sorted, be happy to help you out.
    Meantime, stay safe out there
