    Hi guys I posted a question on the DIY forum the other day and I did not get an answer. I think I finally figured out why. I have been reading the forums for almost a year now and have become familiar with a lot of your trail names and posts. So a couple of weeks ago when I finally signed up I felt like I knew a lot of you. The thing I forgot was you guys have no idea who I am. Just another name that popped up looking for help. I finally realized how rude that was and I apologize for getting off on the wrong foot.
    So lets start again my trail name is UnoGear my real name is Hey You or Rick or Morrison what have you done now one of those. I spend my summers in Upstate New York a little village called Northville. I hike camp backpack and fish in the Adirondacks. About the 1st of November every year I head for Hudson, Florida where I spend the winters. The one thing I have learned about traveling between NY and Fl is I hate hauling stuff back and forth. So this gives me the perfect opportunity to build a hammock rig for New York capable of going down to 20 degrees and another rig for Florida for temps down to the low 40's. My intent is to make the gear for New York out of Goose Down and the Gear for Florida out of synthetics. So far I have two hammocks a Skeeter Beater Pro and A DIY double layer I made (Thanks DIY gear for the design). I also made two sets of whoopie slings and continuous loops out of Amsteel(Thanks TheBrewGuy) for the videos.
    The next two tasks at hand are a Fronkey bug net and some kind of underquilt for my Florida rig. What kind of synthetics can you recommend? opps probably the wrong forum..Any ways guys you have already helped me a lot and I do appreciate it..

    Welcome from the Jersey Shore. I wouldn't worry too much about not getting a response to a thread - probably the subject matter rather than people not knowing you.

    Welcome to the forums from SC. We have a bunch of half backs here, which are people who moved from the NE to FL, didn't like the hurricanes, so moved half way back to the NE.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    Welcome from Virginia! That's a beautiful country you have up there! I had the pleasure of getting lost in the woods up there once.

    Hey, and welcome from Scotland. I actually almost answered your thread the other day but thought some of the guys/gals who know better would've chipped in.

    Climashield apex certainly seems the to be the most coveted synthetic for quilts around these parts. I'll also post a response on your thread

    Hello there, from the other side of Florida.

    Your in luck. There are a lot of folks here in FL and you have a lot on the West coast.

    Remember to come to Ocala for the 4th Annual Florida Hang in Jan 17-20. Over 100+ hangers will be there.
