    Hello over there

    Hello there on the other side of the pond. I'm an ecologist from Stockholm,Sweden and thanks to the inspiration of you guys i have got my first hammock. It seems we are a about a century behind over here but i will try to keep up using the all of this great knowledge in the forum.(thanks for all the videos)

    My favorite places for camping are the archipelago like here and climbing the mountain's in the north like these ones

    If i got these links right you probably can see the abundance of trees are not overwhelming in these places and i guess we need some serious advise on mobile lightweight suspension here. (Can't be ground camping from now on, can i ?)

    Thanks for now. /D

    Välkommen. Fyra stycken aluminiumpinnar (gångstavar som klarar en del) funkar så länge du har bra ankringspunkter i marken.

    And in english, so I'm not too rude.
    Welcome. Four aluminiumsticks (hiking sticks that can manage som load) works as long you have god anchoring points in the ground.

    And to continue.
    I've heard of people who have been camping in our nothern mountains (in Sweden that is) who have manage to get two hammocks up using a guide pole (the x-marking poles along the routes) in one end of the hammock and their hiking sticks in the other end.

    Bradley, you are in trouble when my sides quit hurting!

    I will have to think of a suitable payback.
