    Hello

    Been lurking around for 6 months and figured I'd better sign up. I found this site through Just Jeff's site. I found his while doing a google search for lightweight hiking gear for my B.O.B. I thought this hammock thing might get me and my bad back, back to roughing it while camping. So I made one and love it! Thanks Jeff!

    Welcome to the forum.

    No such thing as roughing it when your in a hammock.
    Beer won't solve problems, but then again, neither will milk !

    Thanks Plowhorse, I have a lot of ?'s but I'm sifting through the forums before bombarding everybody with F.N.G. ?'s.

    Well for years my camping has been limited to popup' camping. My wife will not step foot in a tent. I am originally from West Virginia so I'm used to the woods, but my wife's first time camping was an all week rain soaked tent event @ a 4 wheel drive jamboree and has refused to "rough it since"!

    Welcome to the forum HangingDawg!
    You've made an excellent decision to explore the world of hammocks. My girlfriend and I went car camping a couple of weekends ago and saw a guy sleeping in his hammock outside the pop-up trailer. My kind of people.

    What's simple mean?
    Still my favorite DIY tarp; the Blackcat.

    Yeah, that tarp is about as simple as hitting sombody in the back of their head with a bottle to get their attention is subtle. I like that tarp, just don't know if I'm up for it "yet".
