    Hi to all from Poland

    I became a hanger two years ago. After watching some You Tube video I made my first hammock and loved it. Now I would dread to use one like that for longer than five minutes, it was so bad. Some poor soul who posted that how to video certainly didn't come across this forum. In a few months of browsing round this site I learned a lot. I even registered but never came round to posting. Since then hammock has been my only camping option and I sleep in my self-made cotton heaven at home more often than in my bed.
    I have passion for experimenting and hammocking is a lovely field of exploration. I developed a bad habit of turning everything flat into a hammock just with two pieces of any suitable cord.
    From thin nylon fabric to thick winter duvets I've tested the lot.
    Don't get me wrong. There is certainly plenty I could learn and I will but there is also some stuff I could share.
    People interested in extreme light set ups, rock climbing and survival might like some of my concepts for sure.
    I'll post again when I get back home in three weeks.
    For now here are some pics from my stealth camp last summer when I was waiting for a friend to fly in and give her a ride back to Poland.

    I'm very new to hanging, in fact haven't had my first hang yet. Did notice in one of your pics that you used your motorcycle as a tie-down! Expect I will be doing the same thing. Tnx for the pics.

    Wecome to the world of hammocks. I'm glad you got the DIY talent I need all the help I can get.
    I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. - E. B. White (1899 - 1985)

    Welcome from Sweden!
    Nice thing DIY, like it a lot!
    Poland is close to Sweden, only a small ocean between us.

    Maybe a future group hang?
    No longer with a great "Yukon Yak Fever"

    Why not. Sometime in spring or later. Until then I'm spending most of the time in the UK. I'll follow the HF Euro Hang thread. We'll see what happens.
