    just sayin "hey now" from Massachusetts

    Hey there everybody, thought I'd say hey, been around for awhile but I'm the quiet forum type. I've been hangin for around 5 yrs now started fairly early in my backpackin carreer. I came off the ground cuz of back pain and I've never looked back. My first set up was a HH ULB w/ the jacks no snivler and nest w/ their 8x8 diamond tarp. I found out about all this stuff on Jeff, Risk,and Sgt Rocks site. I now have a wbbb and just ordered a traveler and am looking at building the turtlelady stand so I can sleep full time in my hammock. So even tho I'm quiet I am a dedicated soul. And I also wanted to say thanks for putting you're knowledge out there it's been incredibly helpful. I'm not the most technical person- I did however come home from Lowes w my half price fence top the other night will let you all know how that goes and I will try to not be soooo quiet in the future.

    Welcome aboard from Florida. When you go fulltime you'll never go back. Looking forward to seeing pics of your stand when finished. Completed mine a couple of weeks ago and enjoying the hang. Will be taking it on the road to granddaughters houses in VA & GA this fall. Will be great traveling and sleeping in my hammock every night.
