    Welcome to the club.
    I spent most of my money on beer and women and hammocks.
    The rest I just wasted.

    Welcome, Joe. Glad to have you join us. I hope you're a Speer guy, since Speer Hammocks has its world headquarters in Marion.

    Getting a dumping of snow today making me want to get out even more...
    Welcome to the forum. I know the feeling about wanting to get out. I have been planning a trip with a buddy for about 2 weeks now. My wife decides that she does not want my trip to interfere with her birthday weekend. We are now scrambling to change our plans. I thought she would rather me go the weekend after her b-day and not the weekend before. Boy was I wrong. I am glad I made no reservations.
    and then

    Check out my website www.cwhammocks.com or Find me on the YouTubes
    You can even"Like" me on facebook or follow me on Twitter @cwhammocks
