    A re-intro is in order!

    Hey folks,
    I've been away for a while and as such forgot my original password. Since I'm using a new email address I couldn't get it reset. As such I've created a new username which matches one I use on other sites. I've posted here under the name CanadaEast but I like this new one better. Just wanted to re-aquaint and I look forward to reading alot of reports and submitting my own in the future.

    Should be able to provide a variety. The hammock (HH) is perfect for my hobbies (Hiking, Kayaking, Dual sporting and everyday camping).

    If I haven't spoken to you before, great to meet ya...
    If we've spoken before, good talking to you again...

    disclaimer:
    I try to have fun with my posts, so if I upset you in any way in the future...it'll only get worse!!
    If I had to choose between staying in or going out, I'd rather be me!

    Welcome back.

    I am new myself to the forum but not hanging. I have been hanging in N.S. for years. We may have to get an East coast group hang going.

    Sorry... should have provided links or an explanation. UCR's and the Whoopie slings are methods of splicing rope ( a lot easier than you think ) to form a lighter and easily adjustable suspension. Cool stuff.

    That would fun, when I was here about a year ago, there weren't many from Eastern Canada. There are a few from the New Brunswick Dual Sport web site that now hammock...A group hang might be doable.
