    Greetings

    Well hello,

    Names KuragariSan. My real name's Tim, but I doubt anyone will remember that. Those dudes below? They're me. All of them. You wouldn't believe how hard it was to convince myself to stay still for that photo.



    I'm a senior in High School, a pescatarian, a techie, Permaculture student (Permaculture Design Certification) and general awesome guy. I do a lot of photography and writing, used to do professional filming and I still play a lot of instruments (guitar, piano, mandolin, anything percussion).

    I started hanging late fall/early summer of this year, due to the influence of a few (ok, a lot) of friends who all have hammocks. Right now, my kit is a Grand Trunk ultralight single with JRB Tri-Glides and some webbing. My tarp is a ENO Hex-fly, which I'm still working on perfecting the setup of. I'm currently converting an old sleeping bag into a UQ. I doubt I'll be going back to tent camping any time soon. Eventually, I'll start experimenting with "knot-less" hammock setups for those of us who dislike knots.

    Wow talk about taking life by the horns. Do you have any free time for hanging?
    I like the idea of a knotless setup. I'm down to three knots (OK maybe 4), because I thought that was the easiest way.

    I'm looking forward to your trip reports, and welcome to the forum.

    Welcome from Florida!

    When I was in college (pre-disco) we would go into caves where it was literally pitch black. The photographer with a tripod, would open the shutter and keep it open. He then turned in a battery powered lantern for a second. With the shutter still open and the lantern off, we would all take a side step in the dark. The photographer would turn the lantern in again for another second. We repeated this process a few more times. Finally he would close the shutter.

    The result was that the rock walls and features were fully exposed on the film (there's another history lesson) and we would be only partially exposed in each if our positions. We looked like ghosts because you could see the rock features through our partially exposed images.

    Hadn't thought of this in many years. Thanks for the trip down Memory Lane, Tim!
