    Yahoo Hammock Group Closed

    As of this evening, Ed and I have made the decision to close down the original Yahoo Hammock Camping forum sponsored by Speer Hammocks to any new entries. We will keep it posted as "read only" for existing and new members and have updated the home page to recommend folks come here if they are looking for current information. Hope this will bring lots of new members your direction!

    Karen and Ed

    I was a member there when HF was only a thread in WB. Thank you Karen and Ed for the work you put in to keep it going.

    Sorry to see it go, it was instrumental, and pioneering -- in getting folks interested in hammocking and in thinking about diy gear to make it much more comfortable camping in them. Thanks for running it for so long.

    I also want to record my thanks to you for bringing hammocks back from ancient obscurity. Just look at hammock forums today; now you see what you've caused?
