Hey, I just moved to the St. Paul area of Minnesota from West Palm Beach, Florida. I gave up the ocean for the wilderness and as of right now. I'm Loving it. I've been hiking quite a lot since I moved up here and was interested in doing multi-day hikes. I discovered this site from watching Shug's videos on youtube. I thought about using a tent while hiking, but after reading up on hammocks I say that using when is the best way to go!
