    Go ahead and make some of your gear. Its very empowering (and addictive.) My wife showed me how to thread the machine and since then I have been learning. Once you learn the basics a hammock is easy to make - just follow some of the directions around here.

    And welcome to the forums.

    If you're not familur with the Gila NF, might I suggest you check out the Catwalks in Glenwood. Awesome area with metal catwalks mounted to the cliff walls over the Rapid River. The catwalks follow the old pipe used for mining ore in that area. My Grandparents would acutally walk on the pipe itself to fish/camp. Plenty of water year-round. Another area would be the area above the ghost town of Mogollon. There's actually a trail head just past the ghost town, that will take you down to the upper most section of the catwalks.

    Beautiful country down there. Keep us posted.

    thx.. Festus-99

    Outdoor Riches!

    I agree, Mr. Festuss, living in the land of enchantment offers one a seemingly infinite number of outdoor adventure!

    We plan to start making use of that. Moved here about 3 years ago, from (in a round about fashion) Kansas. Now, don't get me wrong, I luvs Kansas, but New Mexico is a lot like Kansas....just with Mountains. Ah, yon Manzanos I see from my window.

    Kansas was the beginning of the Great American Desert in Mark Twain's day. And many still see it as flyover country, perhaps because of I-70.

    Nevertheless, I love Kansas.

    But I'm downright smitten with this here New Mejico, tambien!

    Here's to happy trails! I got the itch to go hanging and use my Bushbuddy in the recesses of the New Mexico Mountains!

    As a former resident of Kansas I'm willing to give the benefit of the doubt, but I gotta ask...what part of Kansas are you from?

    Not in Kansas anymore

    I'm from the Flinthills, and I declare they have a magnificent, open country beauty!

    But....New Mexico is a lot of plains country, too....just with a few other salient features to boot!
