Hey everyone! I am a newly hammock obsessed hiker. I have hiked and camped for 30 years in a tent and just this year was introduced to the glories of hammock camping and have not looked back. In fact the trip in which I experienced my first hammock camp, resulted in the immediate sale of all my tenting gear and exchange for hammock stuff. I love reading about your trips and seeing your videos. I have for the last 10 years or so camped with 18th century methods. I am a Revolutionary War Reenactor as well. That usually means, blankets, flint & steel fire starters and oil cloth tarps. This means I don't have a ton of modern gear, since switching to a hammock system, I have a lot to get, quilts and such for these cold Virginia winter camps. Take a look at a video I made on my last trip out. Thanks!! Hope to see you on the trail!
