    Hi from the UK

    Just wanted to introduce myself, my names Paul, I'm 34 and live in Kent in the UK. I've been hammocking for a few years with a standard set up, until I recently read The Ultimate Hang, then I wanted to try whoopies to reduce the weight of my hammock and then found Dutchware and want to find out more about different ways to hang so thought I'd join up here. An underquilt is next on my wanted list!

    I'm also a member on BushcraftUK, which is where I found out about this forum.

    Welcome from Denver, Colorado! The Ultimate Hang is a fantastic book - glad you picked up some good times from it.

    An Underquilt is a great next purchase - it changes things completely (compared to pads) in terms of warmth and comfort.

    Hello Paul and welcome to the forums!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Welcome to the HFs Paul, from the PNW!

    Lots of great ideas here and places to link to for spending (this becomes a 'slippery slope' for some of us).

    Welcome! I think he means Hammock Forums, but it may be true of south Texas, too.
