    Greetings from MN

    Hi, I have been enjoying this forum. I have been hammock camping since the '70's, I grew up playing with my Dad's old canvas Navy hammock which I sometimes rigged up in the canopy of a small easily-climbable Elm tree in my yard when I was a kid.

    In my 20's, I used a rope hammock as my full-time bed for nearly a year, attached to the wall studs.

    Used a few different hammock/tarp setups when I was in scouts (27 years ago). Last went hammock camping ten years ago when I was at the Sturgis rally in SD, no bugs, no tarp, it was great. Now I have a Hammock Bliss hammock/Kelty tarp combo that should work good for me, plan on doing some trail camping with my dual-sport motorcycle this summer.

    I like doing recreational tree climbing and have all the gear, cool to see the arborist influence on this forum as far as knots and ropes go.

    Welcome Jerome. There has been talk here before about recreational tree climbing, including some pretty cool pictures.
    Maybe there are still some tree climbers active on HF. But I'm sure there are some bike riders here.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Welcome to the forum. Sturgis, too many people for me. I was content to ride through the rockies. And no tree climbing but lots of rock climbing. People do all kinds of stuff here. Lots of great information and friendly support.
