    Hello from Los Angeles!

    Hey everyone! Okay- I have to admit. I am AMAZED that there is a whole forum dedicated to hammocking and that there is SO much info contained here. It's amazzzzzzing!!!

    I am a rope splicer and I have a little rope splicing biz www.splicesbynick.com. I splice mostly for arborists and recreational tree climbers throughout the world. I needed some quick facts about Zing-It, a line that we use to help set lines up in the trees and your forum was the first thing that popped up.

    So in my other life, I am an outdoors enthusiast and I have a full time job at www.championsusa.com. I'm an outdoor adventure guide. I hammock whenever we go camping, backpacking, etc. I currently have a heavy but lovely hammock (stay tuned for video) and I think you guys are about to revolutionize me!

    I'm glad I found you. If you have questions about rope splicing, I'm glad to contribute!

    love
    nick

    Good another SoCal hanger. Welcome to the HF. Look up Shug on youtube. Good info and funny.

    After perusing this site, I can see that I have a LOT to learn about hammocking.

    I'll be starting a thread soon on some questions I have, but for now I'm happy to be reading all this fun stuff!

    Welcome Nick,
    Your some what of a cult status around HF.
    Your video of "how to do the whoopie" started a complete evolution of how the hammock campers uses their hammock suspension. I for one, would like to thank you for sharing your skills and doing the video.

    HF members have watched your videos several thousand times. More than Elvis's at least.

    I'm interested in seeing your new ideas on ropes and suspension tricks, etc.

    I think that idea actually came from a post by ZA206. But I'm certain Nick's video was good as well.
