    Hello from East Texas

    Just want to give a shout out to all of you, and to Thank ALOT of you for all the great info on this site and hope I can contribute a little myself. I'm not new to hangin, but I am new to the new materials used, well until recently Had to break out the old Dial and Sew and give it a try.As you noticed all my Gear is DIY. Any way not alot of hikers and hangers around here in East Texas, of course it does leave me more places to hang
