    After I get my cast off I have to go through therapy to re-gain use of my left hand... totally stupid.

    BUMMER.... Hope you heal up soon and don't forget there will be plenty of help at the hang. I'd be more than happy to help set you up if you decide to head that way as I' sure many other would too.... Hoping for a speedy recovery
    Happy Hangin'

    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.

    Man Sean, that sucks. Glad your generally ok. Where did this happen?
    If you do decide to head up, I can help set you up or a crap load of other people would too. Just give us a heads up and we'll watch out for ya.

    Sean, who will color coordinate my outfits?

    Get well. And I can put up your rig, if you still wanna make the hang.

    I just recently joined HF, and just noticed this thread. Would there be room for another tent for Saturday evening/night/Sunday day? Someone linked the forums on a DIY Kayak forum, and got curious. I have since made a bed sheet hammock and stayed in it overnight (indoors, mosquitos have been vicious this year and without a bug net...). Loved it despite its limitations (to short and 0 stretch I believe), and have been thinking of doing a couple DIY WBBB for the wife and I. It would help looking at one in person and placing all the parts.

    My kayak build log and launch from the forum that introduced me to HF if your interested. Obviously I am not afraid of a little DIY and a little sewing for some fun outdoor gear!
