    I come in peace!

    Hello everyone Summit here from British Columbia, Canada. I've been captivated with this Hammock camping recently, and I sure hope my Googling directed me to the best place to meet good people that can guide a newbie like me into this new found interest.

    Cheers!

    HF is a never ending vortex of knowledge enjoy it, lots of great info and great people, welcome. I spent two weeks in BC and man thats a beatiful place. Lots of great trees to hang from and beatiful forest.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Yep! Welcome, read and ask away!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys I've browsed through a few topics in the archive that was near or at par with some questions lingering in my head and the answers were right there. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside, I believe this is the place to be.

    And yes we say "EH" up here in Igloo land (giggles). Also, you're right about BC being beautifull and having lots of trees to hang. Hopefully I'll be hanging with the HF banner on my site each time I go out in the near future.

    Cheers!
    Summit
