Boston Slackers where are you?

I started slacking early this summer and have been setting up along the Esplanade at least once a week, and ride the bike path every day. And yet in all that time I've only seen one other slacker, and haven't had any slackers come up and say hi. Is everyone else too busy climbing? Am I in the wrong place? If so, where does everyone set up? I just started climbing outdoors, so for all I know everyone slacks at QQ or Hammond and I just haven't gotten there yet to see it.

Anybody know any good places to setup a line over water before it gets too cold to *want* to fall in?

PS - maybe if there's enough of us we can convince Metrorock to rig a highline every so often.

i've never slacklined, i climb a lot and always wanted to try, i just never did, and don't have too many friends who do... i don't know how to set one up is the main thing holding me back i think... any good intro websites with good instructions of how to set up? the esplanade seems like a great place to do it, on a nice day

there's a small group of slackers at boston college (of all places). if you're interested in learning, let me know and when it turns nice we'd love to help you see if its your thing.
