    Hammock Camper from Northern New York


    Hanging my HH on a 3 day paddle-trip last fall on the Oswegatchie in Northern NY

    I'm a longtime camper, and a hammock camper for the last couple of years. I've been a member of these forums for a while, but mostly just read.

    I know, and have gone camping with, some members, which is how i found my way here.

    I am a public school teacher in Lake Placid, NY, am married with a wonderful wife, a son, and 2 dogs.

    I am always planning (at least) 2 trips into the future.

    Paddling up the Oswegatchie? Nice!!

    The Five Ponds Wilderness is one incredible place to spend time.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Welcome NFA - my son attends Paul Smiths so I have been spending a lot more time backpacking in the ADK's the last few years. My first trip up Marcy was in February of 1973, but I've only been hammocking for the last 3 years.

    Maybe we can get together for a hang sometime.
