    G'day from Canberra, Australia.

    Hi all. I've been lurking here a long time and soaking up all the awesome information and ideas. I think I actually had my first hang about nine months ago with something I bashed together from ripstop cotton.

    Anyway, it's getting warmer and I went for the first walk of the season the other week, took my Tenth Wonder hornet out for a spin. It was a lovely clear/warm night and I didn't even bother with a tarp.

    Well, I've got the bug now, and I'm about to put an order through to DIY Gear Supply for enough junk to make an UL quilt and hammock (and maybe a sock, I haven't decided) and I'm waiting by the mailbox for my new WL TadPole tarp. Hoping to get out for a 3-dayer soon.

    Anyway, I thought I'd post a couple of pics from my trip, along with a larger version of my avatar which I banged together this morning.

    Fantastic forum and fantastic people. I hope to be a more active member on here as time goes on

    Thanks all

    @ Redoleary; it's okay, all Aussie bushwalkers are taught a song which is well known to calm and deter crocs

    Sleep well then my friend.
    I don't suppose you guys have a version of that song that works on bears?
    Good luck,
