    Lofty from Mansfield Ontario Canada

    Hey, been lurking here awhile. but now time to say hi.
    Been a ground dweller for years but now gonna try hanging.
    after tons of reading I was going to attempt to make a hammock - but ended up ordering a WB Blackbird last week.

    I'm just north of Toronto in Mansfield. Most from the city have never heard of it people are always asking - Where is that? I just say "up North"

    Hey Lofty

    Welcome to the forums. There is a great group of Ontario Hangers on the site here. In fact we got back from the Ontario Spring Hang at Algonquin Park 1 week ago.

    I have to admit I'd never heard of your town until I looked up on google maps. I think a better description would be "so many kms west of Barrie, Ontario". With Toronto being right on Lake Ontario, "North of Toronto" covers a lot of ground.

    Have fun with your Warbonnet Blackbird. What do you have for a tarp so far?

    Cheers

    Brian

    Welcome Lofty. Just tell people you're from ski country! You're automatically initiated into the OHHA.

    Lofty,
    welcome to HammockForums and hey from high point nc.
    there is a ton of stuff here to read, learn and ask about.
    if it's hammock related it's here or still waiting to be invented.

    Hey Brian - It's fun to be vague when my customers ask where I live but if they persist I actually tell 'em I'm 80KM north of the Airport - (on airport rd)

    As for tarp - I'm gonna use what I got for now - I have a 10x12 camo-poly tarp, I also have a silnylon poncho tarp - probally too small. I'm gonna dig out one of my Tents and grab the fly and try that too - the fly is 12x12 I believe (been awhile since I've used that tent)
    Eventually I will get a proper tarp.


    Welcome Lofty. Just tell people you're from ski country! You're automatically initiated into the OHHA.
    I am in ski country - I live next to mansfield ski club as well as Mansfield Outdoor Centre is just across the road from me(cross country skiing)


    and your east coasters - We usually take a family road trip to Launching PEI (it's by Montague PEI) every summer. It's gonna be nice to have the hammock at the cottage this year....
