    I'm also new to the forum, and haven't posted yet for two reasons:

    1. I'm still digging through the archives and soaking up the years of accumulated knowledge & wisdom, and...

    2. I'm too busy SEWING!!! :-)

    Two Speer-style hammocks complete, one for me, one for my son. I picked up 14 yards of 1.9oz coated ripstop from Ed Speer, and am working on tarps. I need to learn to use a sewing machine, for certain.

    I've owned a military net hammock for years, just started really using it a couple years ago. Was talking with Shug while he was working (yes- he has a job, and he's awesome at it) and he gave me the hammockforums.net tip. I got bit by the hanging bug BIGTIME now. Best sleep I've ever had in the woods, I won't go to ground again if I can help it!

    Welcome, all you newbies that are lurking out there.

    Posting ebbs and flows, there just seems to be a quiet patch lately.

    Hello?!?!

    Since joining (in April), I have made a DIY hammock, hung with it overnight - loved it.

    Bought a Blackbird.

    Built Cavscout's (and other contributors) hammock stand, - hung with it overnight.

    Bought a Yeti.

    ...and posted pictures all along the way...

    All from advice, instruction, ideas from this forum.

    Speaking for new members that may have gotten overlooked (in being welcomed), fly under the radar (with our Blackbirds), or don't post enough. - Welcome to the hanging community - we look forward to your contribution to this growing passion that we all share!

    Amen, brother Wah Wah.

    Sorry if we (and I, especially) forget to welcome people occasionally. I never got a formal "Welcome to the Forums" thing either, at least that I remember. I'd have to go searching for my first thread, and I'm too lazy. I know Grizz welcomed me, but I can't remember if I was ever welcomed in a thread, so when I see new posters I usually try to welcome, if I catch it.

    Welcome to the forum, Finn!
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    I too, like Mars am a ground dweller. Today I have posted for my first time.
    The idea behind hammocks or hanging from trees intrigued me, and am looking at it as an alternative for light weight gear for back-packing into the high country of British Columbia. I can see the advantages as well as the disadvantages. I'm not sure how they will be in the minus 20's or more. I like the weight issue or the idea that you are truly self-contained. After I have had a chance to digest all the posts and actually get a chance to build one and try it out, will I be able to have any meaningful input. This weekend we will be making a prototype and testing it out.
    We have made our own tents in the past, and our latest creation was a 12' x 14' Prospector Tent that was used for hot-tenting in the back-country of northern Ontario where temp's were not uncommon to reach -40C. This tent was made of untreated RS nylon and weighed in at just over 9 lbs. The idea behind untreated is that it is allowed to breath and condense on the polytarp that used as a fly. Maybe more on that later.
    OK, I got to get back to reading all these interesting posts.
    Lots to absorb.

    Welcome Dan S...
    Many folks here have hung at -20*C (-3*F) It can be done (my best is 3*F with -25*F windchill..others have been as low as -27*F or -33*C!).
    Read, read, read, and when you can't find an answer, ask! That is what all of us did and still do!
