    Michigander's ahoy (and all others as well!)

    hello everybody. i'm an avid camper, well at least i like to think so... spent a good portion of my life going 'up-north'. for those that don't know, that is what a michigander says when they are traveling in any direction with in Michigan.

    i've tried the hammock thing a few times and couldn't figure out just that one thing. i recently spent over 3 weeks on the Jim Corbett reserve with my hammock, and wouldn't have kept off the ground if it wasn't for a couple of mountaineering chaps that were there. luckily they had some climbing straps (like 3") and were able to muscle up my sad suspension system. i thought i knew what i was doing, but after trolling on this forum I am humbled. and i have learned, NO NYLON STRAPS! (especially if your a big guy, as i am).

    i am very excited and looking forward to getting out in the woods with a new outfit of off-the-ground chillin'!!!

    cheers,

    -sid

    Welcome from another Michiganian where the trees are just the right height.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
