    Thumbs up Greetings from Norway

    Hey my name is Pål(Paul)from norway
    I'm an electrical engineer and in my sparetime I fish salmon/trout/hike etc.

    I've been hiking/camping for many years.
    And as I've progressed through numerous of tents and lavvo's I've reached a point were constantly adding items to
    improve comfort(field bed/woodstove) I was adding so much weight to my load that I got limited to my canoe.
    (which I love, don't get me wrong).

    Tentipi Safir 7bp. By far the best lavvo(fabric alone is 10kilo). Made in Sweden

    After alot of thought, and watching Shug's videos over and over again I decided to buy a hammock.
    Ordered a Warbonnet Blackbird, Superfly camo and a Winteryeti uq. (using my sleeping bag as tq).

    After 10days I finally recieved my hammock and I was very pleased with my purchase. Excellent service from Warbonnetoutdoors.com


    My brother was the first to try out the new hammock(strait out the box)

    Sadly I have not yet had the time to take a hike, as my daughter was born little over 2 months ago.
    But I can't wait for a weekend in the woods, and to show some photos of hanging in the beautiful Norway

    Happy Hanging

    Welcome from Florida.
    There are several Scandinavian members here. A group hang took place in Sweden less than a month ago which was attended by an American or two.
    Congratulations on your expanding family! It sounds like you will soon need a little hammock
    We would love to see pictures from Norway when you have the time to post them.

    Hello from Canada! My wife and I adopted 2 kids 6 months ago and it has definitely affected my outdoor time but of course I am happy. Hopefully you'll get out very soon! Have fun!

    Welcome aloft from SC. I like the pics and I know you are much more comfortable in the hammock vs the tent. Congrats on the new baby, and I know you are very busy now. Good luck with future hikes and hangs.
    Happy Hangin!!!
