    Haha - that's great. Wait till they convert and see what they say...

    And we're working on the beginner section, Pete Thompson. Until then start here.

    Awww crap....

    We're in the process of evolving into an entirely new type of cult geeks. Guess I was in denial or something. Oh well. Isn't gonna stop me from hanging!

    I don't think any one here will - just fun to see a diffrent take on things. I would really like to hear some of canoeist't thoughts on hammock camping. Consider that a personal invite to contribute.

    Prescient almost beyond words.

    Nearly 7 1/2 years later and the "cult" is entrenched in the world of outdoor recreation and growing stronger every day.
    Have sherpas, will travel...

    I always wanted to join a cult, but the Masons and Elks kinda scared me.

    Now I'm in a sub-cult of a sub-cult of a cult - pallet-burning pineys who hang in hammocks and search for Bigfoot and the Jersey Devil.
    Propaganda is a time-honored, socially-acceptable method of sharing your religion with the world, and we Pastafarians are happy to be part of this noble tradition.

    Most cult members don't admit they are in a cult.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    Yep - anyone who wants to join is welcome. Lots of the discussion here is on how to make lighter hammocks...it would be interesting to have a new perspective from canoeists. How to make a more comfortable hammock where weight isn't such an issue, maybe. Or tricks for setting up around the water.

    Seriously, this site is about hammock camping...whether it's backpacking, biking, motorcycles, canoeing, car camping, etc.

    And we're pretty thick-skinned for the most part, I think. We make fun of ourselves more than other folks make fun of us. I hope, anyway!
