    Will do. I'm definitely looking for some good local places to to hike/hang. I'm right in Waterford, grew up in Detroit and Wixom. I would love to meet up with some local folks!

    I'm really looking forward to my upcoming trip. I've been wanting to get back outside, but have been nervous to just head out on an overnighter, just to find out than my back couldn't take it, and have to crawl out on my own. I think if I get 7 good nights in the hammock in Canada, I'll be good to go.
    Thanks again for the warm welcome!

    Welcome. Nice hang spot you got there near the house. Definitely a fine place to do several nights of test before you head to Canada.

    I slept in my hammock for the first time on Sunday, in the in-laws backyard. I slept later than anyone in the house! Also, I woke up for the first time in at least 3 years with zero back pain. Now I need to convince my wife that I should hang it in the house!
    I have a feeling I'll get the best week's sleep on my upcoming trip...

    Welcome from another Michiganian. My wife and I "hang" together lots. Enjoy the rest.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
