    Re-Introduction / new name

    Hello new friends and old, I am the member formerly known as Thexuprising. Well the long awaited name change has finally came. My old name came from a band I was in 11 years ago. I had made that my email and login for many sites. When arriving here I quickly used that name to make an account, not realizing how much this community would come to mean to me. I had always always hated the name but just used it because it was easy to remember.

    I am now exup. Plain and simple. Call me exup, x, up, uprising, chad, whatever you'd like people have been shortening the name for awhile and WV suggested the name change to it, so I decided to go for it!

    Happy hanging to all!

    Congrats on the name change.

    Have used this name on emails on other accounts as well. One of these days I may look into that whole trail name thing!

    Thank you for the re-welcome. I have use thexuprising on all other types of accounts, but not exup, that's simply what many of people have called me.

    Oh and big thanks to Cannibal for the name change and allowing me to do it.

    Like I told him, I feel like a new person, a new hammock will do the trick though!

    Ohhh! I was rooting for 2cups. Am I remembering right-wasn't that in the mix? Anyway, right on exup!
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    Longbeard is gone or that would have been the name change, haha. Issues at work so I had to cut it. Now its short beard, one day again to be a long beard.

    You are right twotents! It was 2cups. Which I did like but wanted to stay with what everyone already called me. But please feel free to call me 2cups. Still have a minimum of 2cups of coffee before I hike and that's a rule! Haha.

    Oh man, if my name had come from my old band name, "Cannibal" would seem mild; Death Metal was my musical choice back then. I still think I should be getting royalties from "Cannibal Corpse" for using my name in part.

    So, which hammock are you going to be using to reinvent yourself?

    Well I'm hoping for a special bridge hammock to give a true test and see how I like it. And I want to make a new simple gathered end hammock. Shorter than my traveler at 108" long but keep a good 60" widrth.

    I would love to see the young death metal Cannibal! Hah. Many people have said I look very metal.
