    Change is good!

    It would be a nice addition to the forum to add in the donating section the subjects of backpacking and bikepacking with hammocks. This would not take away from other subjects but would add some much needed organization for these types of hanging. I think this would also bring in some new donating members. We already have a paddling section so why not? Also the backpack section could just be called gear, a mix of all hanging stuff, water filters, cook kits, knives/tools, backpacks, head lamps and so on.

    I also wouldn't mind a bikepacking section since I've spent a lot of my time cycle touring with a hammock. Maybe a sub section off the backpacking thread?
    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."

    Great idea. I would love to get into bikepacking and would like to know how others do it.

    You'll love it once you get going. I have over 45,000 miles of touring in the last 10 years. The back roads have a lot more scenery. If we had a bikepacking thread, I would tell you all my secrets.

    Lets just start a thread. If it gets enough attention they will create a sub section and move it accordingly

    Sorry, I'm tired - could you show me some of those posts? Are they in the donating section or somewhere else? I would love to get on my soapbox and talk about touring. Uh, touring with a hammock, I mean.

    only if we get a motorcycle hammock camping section, and everybody else gets their favorite hobby/activity with hammocks section too.
