    Greetings from yet another Michigander

    I have been poking around here for a couple weeks now, reading up on Just Jeff's page and watching Shug's videos. I made my own Whoopie Slings up and am about to get to work on my DIY Speer hammock.

    There is a lot of really helpful info on here and some great people in the community. Hopefully I will get a chance to meet some of you next summer at a hang. I look forward to sharing my projects and reading up on what all of you continue to come up with.

    Welcome to the madness! Make and tweaking your own gear will quickly become an obsession.

    I would love to, but that weekend is my first anniversary and already have plans with the wife. The winter is right out until I can get better equipped, so hopefully sometime next summer.

    Welcome from another Michigander. You will have a great time here, and making your own gear from the helpful tips is a real benefit.

    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!
