    newbie but not to Hammock

    I would like to give hello to all just came across this site last night.
    I live in northern Canada have used hammocks for most my life except when it's been really cold.
    Sleeping in a lean to is a better choice in -40 Celsius but I have done -40 Celsius in a hammock you can survive wind is a big factor.
    I have a Hennessy hammock A system end a scout for my son I have you some of the military models from way back but overall a Hennessy hammocks have been my preferred choice. I've also freelanced with search and rescue where the Hennessy hammock always gives me a place to sleep and also in a military background.
    I spent until four o'clock in the morning looking at your site needless to say I ran the day half awake.
    My typing skills are very poor so I enlisted Dragon NaturallySpeaking I have had a major glitch on it so sometimes I miss the spelling mistakes.
    I hope to get to collaborate with you all on different sleeping arrangements and how you'll keep warm or cool and your setups.
    I had a look at your map for Google and was quite surprised that there was not too many people in Canada.
    always willing to correspond and exchange ideas

    Welcome, don't worry about your spelling, 2/3rds of us can't spell and the other 1/3 is to old to know the difference.

    Glad your here.

    I can spell, as long as spell check catches all the mistakes, if it doesn't then I can't.

    [B][B][B]Welcome friend,

    as far as must reads, be sure to check out the following:

    From suspension systems forum:
    Whoppie slings (they are easy, trust me)
    - on a related note, use 6-8 foot tree huggers with toggles (marlin spike) to attach to slings, or use biners for a weight penalty
    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...?t=9349Weather protection forum:

    Knot Info - for ridgeline setup using two sliding prussics
    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=10115

    How about a whoppie tieout - This thread is about prussic guyline and UCR (Utility constrictor rope) guyline setups, they elminate notes and make adjustments a cinch.

    Watch all of Griz's primer videos in this thread about hammock suspensions:
    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/f...splay.php?f=86

    there are some of the most recent advancements the members have made to the technology of hammocks. enjoy!
