    my facebook sent me a message asking where ive been lol. i replied... ive been hangin around.. jk im with you all. this is just nutty. but ive never hiked longer camped more comfortably or felt better. this site and the hammock community is the real reason. when i posted needed help with my tarp, i got so much feedback. including a comment from the face of hammocking (shug) the brains (grizz) and dejoha the author of the ultimate hang. who personally shot a video of tarpwork specifically with my tarp and for me. these people and many others. heck each and every one of you are the real glue that makes noobs stick. im stuck.and i love it

    This bare-bones set up (after suspension mods) will be used as my weight saving option for backpacking. I couldn't beat the price, right?
    That's the same reason I got mine. Way lighter than my Safari and I couldn't beat $12 each. I also figured I'd get a spare in the event that I mess up modding it or destroy one of them.

    Speaking of mods, the USPS held up to its motto and delivered my Amsteel and carabiners today even with Hurricane Sandy outside my door. I've already printed out the splicing walk through, and am planning on making my whoopies via headlamp if needed.

    I didn't realize how bad it was until yesterday. I got my Kelty 12x12 not even a month ago, and now I'm sitting here saying, "Well, my Kelty is big, so maybe I should get a little one, a light one and a medium one."
    It's like a plague....a comfortable, enjoyable plague.

    I moved from obsessing over suspension mods to making DIY alcohol stoves. Soda can, Beer can, you know you can experiment almost endlessly with number of jet holes and placement?
    I foolishly thought I didn't like camping before my HH. Is there something in the rain fly coating that they're not telling us about?
    A heads up would be nice...what I am most likely to obsess about after best stove design? I am guessing TQ/UQ but what do I know? MMWWAAAAH! L'il Cal XO

    I think it's in the coating on the Amsteel.....

    addictive

    I got my Amsteel rope in the mail yesterday and bought some more stuff today.

    Saturday I was tailgating at the TCU/OSU college football game in Stillwater and noticed a JoAnn Fabrics two blocks away... so I left the tailgate to look for rip-stop nylon.

    Yeah, it's an addiction.

    I have to agree. 6 whoopies, 4 continuous loops, 2 soft shackles in amsteel and 5 continuous loops for prusiks in zing-it later, I have a second order coming. Because, well......you have to have multiple color options for whoopies. And adjustable ridgelines. And camo tree straps are the new black.

    Well, maybe just a little OBSESSED!
    Spoken like a true hammaholic. I'll bet you say you can quit anytime.
