    Lurkers Identify Yourselves

    After reading a few threads this week which seemed to start out with something like "I have read this thread for a few years now but never posted" or "I've only been a lurker so far but have a question". I'm just wondering how many people are out there are lurkers and like to listen to the conversations/topics but never post. I guess this thread is two-fold. 1. For me to say hi to all of you lurkers and 2. Give you lurkers a place to introduce yourself, say hi and then... go back to lurking

    Logic problem

    If I'm a lurker then by definition I don't post. So now that I am posting this note about being a lurker I am no longer a lurker, but a poster. It is all very confusing!?

    Although I do post on other forums (BPL mostly), I am too new to hammock camping to really feel I have much to offer. I do appreciate all the info you regulars are willing to share with us lurkers.

    Thanks

    WELCOME ALL!!!!!

    IMHO - tis better to keep silent if you have nothing *** at this time *** to contribute, but SPEAK UP if you have something to share!!!!! or lingering questions to ask.

    And... if you have learned anything from this forum, and thereby saved yourself a few coins along the way, do the right thing, and become a contributing member....

    This is one of the best forums you'll find. Friendly and civil. Don't be afraid.

    I lurk on some other forums, unrelated to outdoor recreation, and I'm quite frightened of posting, due to the possibility of getting my head torn off by the experts!

    "'Tis better to keep silent and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all dubt." As I ave never been one to be afraid of being thought a fool, I dove right in. Took me a little while to get the lay of the land so to speak, but I have gelaned so much....
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Newbie

    I am new to hammock camping ever since a buddy let me try out his on a recent outing. I have had hammock envy ever since. I was/am a lurker but had to join to see some of the innovative setups while I try and decide on a hammock system for me. This forum has been a great resource and it seems to be a nice community. I'll be less of a lurker and more of a poster when I have something more to say (and try out my new hammock system whatever that might be).

    This forum has cost me plenty.......

    I've aquired too many hammocks, straps, cords, rings, buckles and tarps in the few short months I've been here. I just picked up my mother-in-laws old sewing machine. (like I don't have enough hobbies already)

    Seriously, great forum with a lot of help. Happy to be a contributing member.

    Wild Mike here ... well wildmike4 was the only one close enough. I joined awhile ago and then life got in the way. Now I'm back and have just bought a Skeeter Beater Pro from heescha (I hope it's on it's way).

    I'm going to be 57 this Sept and am a Scoutmaster for a small troop of 5 boys. We camp once a month and I've been thinking for awhile now that hammock camping looks comfy and easy to set up camp with. For a long time I used a large Coleman Tent with a cot for my sleeping shelter (well I still have them). then a couple of years a built a small sleeping Teardrop trailer that I used for 2 summer camps. I sold it this year and took the plunge into the wonderful world of hammock camping.

    I purchased the material to make a tarp (OK and also the Wallyworld nylon to make a hammock with, but with the price of the SBPro it wasn't worth making it.) so the tarp will be my first project.

    I have met with Canoebie and hopefully I'll make the Midwest Paddle trip he and the group are planning.

    So ... that's me ... well that's only part of me ... buha ha ha haaaa
