    West St. Paul, Minnesota new(ish) to HF's.

    Sup yall. Just thought I'd make my first post here in the introductions. I've done 2 week long hangs in the BWCA, in early Oct the past two years.

    The first year (2014) probably got down to 25. This was my first trip in the hammock. I had an eno DN, Kelty Noah 12 tarp, a sleeping bag for a TQ and a early 80's LL bean sleeping bag as an underquilt. Snowed 5 of 7 days. Made it through the trip with a toasty warm butt. The "bean" bag was great but super heavy and bulky.

    The second year(2015) I upgraded the UQ to an ENO Vulcan. Temps hit 30 ish. Slept fantastic and warm. Weather was much better this trip (actually it was rediculous how nice it was.

    Beyond that I've done a couple of weekends in the rig camping out of the car. I'm officially over ground camping.

    Anyway, I'm excited to share experiences with yall and learn a bunch. I've alreardy learned a lot just reading posts. Oh and I just made my first purchase from Dutch (Half-Wit hammock).

    PEACE

    I grew up in your area. Now living in NY. Welcome and you'll get plenty of info here. Just read articles and watch videos from Shug and others. Enjoy the trees and see you on the trail.

    Thanks, for the welcome. I have watched all of shug's vids once (or three times). Truly a wealth of knowledge.
