    The single pole hammock over a paddle was a great trick to show my buddies on the canoe trip. Thanks

    Smile Gosh!

    Thanks to all who welcomed me in this thread. It is amazing to realize that so many DIY hammock folk read those pages. As to the wind bumpers described on another page... If y'all did not find it, then I guess I never wrote it - though I must have planned to.

    OK, time to start catching up with everyone's ideas.

    Risk=Imrisk :)

    A welcome from another of your fans....you didn't just contribute to hammocking but to many other sports/hobbies/interests that interested me. Yours is a great mind and I'm glad you are again directing it at this hanging interest.
    Thought of something for you Risk....since you have been out of the loop for a while. See which development/advancement that has taken place in your abscence is the most profound (in any sense of the term).

    welcome back. i reverted to some of your "old ways" after exploring the wide world of hammocking. glad your webpage is still up and active -- i've learned
    a lot, and appreciate looking back in time, reverting to the basics.

    i'm now in oregon, by way of ohio.
