    Dweller turned hanger!

    Hi everyone....new to the forum just wanted to introduce myself. Been "lurking" around your site for some time and finally got my ENO Singlenest today so i guess its official. Im on my way to being a hanger. I live in Port Clinton, PA and am fortunate enough to have an address on the AT, literally, there is a white blaze in front of my house on a pole. Anyways, been backpacking for some time, always been a tent or tarp user but im sick of the hard rocky mountains we have in PA.
    Went with a gray/red Singlenest to match my pack and ordered a seatbelt simple sling from Strapworks. Ive been looking at getting Cinch clips but when i went to order the shipping is actually more than the clips...anyone know a local place i could possibly buy them from?
    Quick thanks to angrysparrow for help with my reqistration!

    GET INTO IT!

    Welcome SnackPack ! Hanging opens up a hold new realm to backpacking . . .and btw . . . NICE ADDRESS !

    Careful with any help AngrySparrow . . . he and others got me drooling over brats w/ venison bacon wrapped around it ! I'm fearing my wife is going to have me on a tofu diet soon . . . . although I am sure if the advice pertains to hammocks, you are probably safe.

    Hi, snackpack...I'm not sure if it was for the same item (but I think so), but someone else said the same thing about high postage.

    Go back to the site and see if they have a USPS option (for about $2.95, I think). If not, email them and ask.

    You might want to go to the section that includes bug nets. It's a sub-forum.
