    It always makes me think of my first visit to London when I returned after lunch and was asked if I had "q'ed". Two thoughts went through my mind: "aren't you off by a letter?"; and "isn't that a rather personal question?"

    Welcome to HF from Bama.........saying your a swinger will get you some crossed looks where I am from as well but tell someone you are going to hang yourself over the weekend and possibly some others will join you will definitely get the heart rates up of most folks I know, thats why I do it all the time!!!!!!!! Thanks for the laughs this morning and enjoy your time in the woods.

    Sheepskins are kinda bulky but verrrry comfy and the ravers? Well, the ones who didnt sh@t themselves and run tended to be so interested they'd come over and gimme a swing, generally hard enough to take me to 90 degrees each side, causing web creak and spontaineous occupant tourettes =) Hey thanks for your warm welcome guys! And especially nice to hear from a fellow midlander and to have another raise-a-smile quote there bigbamaguy gotta keep these groundwellers humour up!

    You need a whole new language for GB alamosa and as for not queuing, gosh, you mighta got sent to the tower for not joining in our national passtime =)

    Wow, theres a few of us 'Very Easterners' here then! Thank you sooo much for your welcome, looking forward to getting more knowledge n experience and having a really good root around the site... gosh, another of those lingual faux pas, I bet any Aussies will be smiling at the noob as well now =)

    Hi TurboGirl, just saw your post on BCUK so thought I'd visit HF again, it's been ages.

    I'm a little south of you in Sussex, hammock camp as many weekends as I can, and totally agree with you about the sheepskins. If weight isn't an issue then I put 2 in for a really cozy night.

    Hello again - thought I'd say hi on this forum too. Can't believe how many "swingers" you've brought out of the closet over at BCUK - most of them are on this forum too - we obviously can't get enough swingin' action in just one place.

    A warm welcome from Germany where there's another midget hanging in the tree, not biting the dust!
