    A big Hello

    Hi all,
    Just joined the forum today, so a big Hello to all. I live in the North West of the UK, I (we) are into Canoeing / camping and get out doors as much as we can. If we're out tandem then we use a tent, but when solo it's a Hammock, I have a DD travel hammock at the moment, but am awaiting a Blackbird to be delivered any time now. Looking forward to learning more about hammocking, & this seems to be the right place, a relative newbie to hammocking then, so lots of dumb questions due to follow.

    Hello, Hello, Hello!

    As you can see, we're all very unfriendly folk here. Keep to ourselves, preserve the secrets of hanging... Naaahhh. I've not been here long, but I guarentee you'll like it. ^.^

    Nice to see yet another hanger from the right ( ) side of the pond. There seems to have been a boom of us recently!

    Anyways- Welcome, from north of the border!

    You know how they say there is no such thing as a dumb question? Trust me no one here will ever accuse you of that we all have had silly or unusual questions a time or two. If all else fails go check out Shug's vid's and he has probably covered it. Fronkey is always a good source of info too.
