    Post I'm only here for the fresh air.

    So, I'm 30yrs old, married to an outstanding woman for 7 years, and have been blessed with two boys. I am Active Duty U.S. ARMY as an 88M( Truck Driver, Bullet Magnet, I.E.D. Finder.) When not deployed I live in El Paso, Tx.

    I enjoy Computers, Camping, Hikeing, Fishing, Reading, Cooking, Fixin' Stuff, and just about anything D.I.Y. related.

    I guess I'm here because I used to own a HH Jungal Hammock that belong to my Grand Father when he was in the service. The reason I say "used to own" is I fell through it about two weeks ago while on a mission. Not fun after 11+ hours on the road and was ready for sleep. I got in it, layed there for a few minutes, shifted to my side when it split, and I was taste testing Iraqi dirt unvoluntarily. It had a small hole in it that I had not gotten to mending yet.

    I've come to realise that most of the hammocks that I like, that are in the style I had are a bit pricey and more than what I can afford. Currently I have my wife looking in the wally world bargain bin for RSN so I can make a new hammock.

    I'm also here because while I was looking for a way to replace my Dearly Departed HH I came across tothewoods.net . Just Jeff Mentions this site many times and I figure maybe I could learn some new stuff from here as well.

    Spire:
    Thank you for your service to the country. Sorry to hear about the hammock, please make sure that it gets a proper burial since it has served two generations of soldiers well.

    Wow, Thanks everyone for the welcome to the forums. For those who thanked me for serving my country, Thank you for your support.

    @ Shadow Alpha: I know. So far there has been a tab up on his site on my computer for a week now. I keep reading and re-reading stuff for ideas.
