    Hi

    Well I am new to this site and love so far
    I just completed my first hammock. I wanted one to strap on my Harley. I made it out of Duck...and in the process learned how to use a sewing machine. I cant believe that I was using a sewing machine..lol It cost me about 16.00. Now i need to get a tarp and a net.
    I am thinking about getting back into hiking.. see what this site started..

    Welcome pops! Glad you could join us. Be careful, that do-it-yourself stuff is pretty addicting. Post some pics of your new hammock when you get a chance!

    Welcome to HF! I think it's great when folks say in their first post that they've already made a DIY project...good stuff!

    yeah- those 'testing hangs' that turn into naps can land you in some hot water- keep that alarm bell handy!
    Welcome to the fun!
