    Talking Hey Y'all!

    Hey Y'all from down here in South Carolina. I've bounced back and forth between SC and TX, and finally landed in Abbeville, SC. I work for a local paving contractor as a scheduler and safety officer. My work allows me to travel a good bit around the western part of the piedmont and upstate.

    I was working for a summer camp during college when I first started hammock camping (cheap Wally World woven hammock with spreader bars) and plastic sheeting for a tarp. I now have an ENO OneLink set-up that I really like. I am a bit of a project junkie. I love the thrill of "starting" a new project. I am currently working on gathered end hammocks for the entire family - me, wife, 2 girls.

    I joined this forum to help me in my addiction to new projects. Usually I will start a project and get bored with it and start a new, shiney, project without completing the old one. I am hoping that I will be able to stay focused long enough to... Hey! what's that?

    Howdy! Welcome to HF. You'll have to post pictures of your projects as you finish them. We love pictures here, and

    Ha! This is the worst place possible for somebody with ADOS (Attention Deficit..Ooo Shiney). You'll be bouncing from one project to the next with wild abandon. But it's a really fun ride, so strap yourself in.

    Welcome to the fourms!

    He is your friend, your companion, your defender... he is your dog. You are his life, his leader, and master. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of that devotion.
