    Greetings to all from northern EU

    Hi there all!

    I am a young man from northern part of scandinavia.

    I got interested in hammock camping a few years ago, since then I've been hammock camping every summer, more so during this summer.

    I have been using TTTM double, diamond tarp from a local manufacturer and DIY'd bug net. I have been on a lookout for an UQ, as I have frozen my butt off with even a 3-season synthetic SB. I was thinking of buying the DD UQ or DIY'ing it.

    I am specially interested in so called stealth camping, and I am a big fan of camouflaged stuff. I have some DIY-projects going on, such as camopainting my tarp. I already painted my bug net, thread is here: https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...41#post1284241

    Yeah I'm from Finland. You've heard right, there are ton of bugs and they're fiery! But they are not the problem for me, the black fly's are. They are so small they can fit through TTTM bug net and the bites leave a nasty mark that bleeds for a long time.

    Welcome from Florida, USA.
    We have a Google docs spreadsheet that you can add your name to. Sign up under the column labeled Finland. You will have to scroll to the right of all the state names of the USA. There are already 4 others that have signed up under Finland. Send them a Private Message if you want to get together for a Finnish group hang!

    The link to that is in the first post of this thread
