    Hi from Finland

    Hi, I found these forums some days ago and decided to join. I'm around 30 years old and I live in norhern Finland. I got my hammock last year, but I really have used it couple times this summer. So far I have had not so pleasant nights, and I hope I can solve some issues with your help. I got a lot of browsing to do.

    Here is a picture of my setup. It's beside my house, hanging in (dont know the english word for thing that you put your wet laundry to dry outside).



    I'm a total newbie with hammocks, so I'm sure I'll find good information on this forum.

    I think we call that a clothesline in English, but I can't be sure.

    Welcome from the Jersey Shore. I am sure you will find all the support you need to get you hanging comfortably.

    Welcome from Texas.

    My grandparents came from the other side of the Baltic, on the east coast of Sweden. Never been there, sorry to say.

    Lots of great information here, and lots of people eager to help, too.
