I am a male currently living in Burnsville, MN and have been camping as long as I can remember. I got into back packing about 6 years ago cutting my teeth on the SHT. I lived in Colorado for a couple years and have done numerous solo trips in the Rockies. I moved back to MN and am interested in meeting people who frequent the SHT. If you are like minded or know of any SHT group hangs get in touch! My longest outting is one week, but am considering a longer thru hike at some point before I get too much older.
I'm 40 and a financial professional when not in the back country. I'm not trying to do more than 10 miles in a day.
I have long been a ground camper, but last year I hiked with a hammocker, and I have since sworn off my tent. I have been geeking out on Shug videos and have collected an assortment of Dutchwares. I have a couple hammocks already, one a foxoutfitters with an adjustable Ridgeline and bug net. The other is blackbird. I've made the leap to an under quilt, and will be acquiring a top quilt soon. Winter tarps are on wish list. Anyways...
I really think the hammock community is neat, and again am interested in hanging on the SHT. Thanks to all who post tips, tricks, and share hammock and gear info.
