Hi there, folks!

I am a 24 year old college student in NW Georgia. I plan on being an English or History professor.

I have been a semi-outdoors type person all my life. I have been on countless car camping trips and day hikes and short canoe trips, but recently have grown an interest in backpacking and backwoods camping. I really want to get way "out there" and do some true "roughing it". I was introduced to hammock camping through a Ray Mears video, and it seems perfect for what I want to do.

I came to this forum to find help on equipping myself and my girlfriend for this summers camping trips and hopefully my first backpacking expedition.

See ya around the forum!
