    I love hearing from people in places I've never been or heard of & you definitely qualify!
    Just looked up the area on the map - wow

    Be sure to throw your questions up in the general area as well. Sometimes folks don't see them in the introduction forum.

    And, welcome from Charlotte NC.

    Thanks for the advice. Now you know of the place you should come out sometime and do the Cabot Trail, lots of hiking trails out there and the view is extraordinary.

    Be sure to ask for clarification of explanations if needed as some of the terminology and items used in hammocking are new stuff. And don't worry if you don't utilize the latest "gee-whiz" gadget or technique as you start out either, maybe stick to the basics at first and some of the other stuff will make sense or be clear later on. I advise only because its what happened to me. Nearly everything if not everything you need to know can be found on this forum. So question away! Oh and welcome from Michigan!

    Hey Luc,

    I've just ordered my first hammock (wbbb) for both my fiancé and myself. We live in Halifax but she's from Judique so we're in CB all the time.

    Maybe we'll see you hanging around sometime.

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Very Cool! Do you mind if I ask if you had to pay customs and what all that cost?

    Judique is a beautiful area I almost wish I had family out there so I would have more of a reason to visit. I always try to make it out though when there's an event or something like celtic colours!

    Take care,

    Luc

    Welcome from eastern NC.

    Tell Natalie MacMaster we all said hello. Saw her in concert down here a couple of years ago. Fabulous fiddle player and dancer.

    In theory, there's no difference between theory and reality.
    In reality, there is.

    I have family on the Island and was thinking about a trip down home to visit for some great trout fishing and hanging...but do not know of any decent places to hang.. maybe you could offer some advice on some areas to consider on the Cape.
    When asked why I sleep with my shoes on? I don't need to out run a bear, just need to out run my camp mates.

    Welcome to the forums!!!

    That trip sounds awesome... When are you planning on passing through Ontario? You might hit upon an EGL hang on your way!
