    Another Swede

    Greetings fellow hangers.

    As I ground dweller no more i came here for guidance and found it
    Great forum with a heap of neat tricks and tips.

    I'm a 28 year old from the middle of Sweden,
    (or perhaps north if you ask the southerners who really have no clue )
    into the whole bushcraft deal.
    Also into photography and computers.

    The whole comfort-thing is what made me sold on hammocks, not being stiff from sleeping on ground in the morning makes all the difference in the world.


    here's a stupid clip i put togheter of my setup as of now,
    (I need some 'rap rings' for easier setup though)

    And i thought i'd share me and my friends yearly canoe trip from last summer:

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    I'm not quite sure but i'm guessing that makes you a "Yank"...

    Nice name on your city, i approve it =)


    Bubba > it's a Pike, and arent really considered eating for human (more for cats) but we didnt really want to waste it.
    I was hoping to catch some 'brown trout' but didnt have any luck with those.

    ps
    to save myself "trouble" from people over there for calling you Yanks.
    ( i was referring to Swedish geographic location in my post )

    Welcome! Great video, Swedex. Including shots of reading the instructions is wonderful - probably a real eye-opener for many who struggle to understand the world around them. I like the real-world view of snowshoeing, too, plus nice fire-building technique at the end. I look forward to more vids from you.
