I come from a land in the shadow of the Tetons -- I breathe the Yellowstone. I've come to learn about your dark arts.
Honestly, I've a few too many bad nights in tent-fulls of snorers. I've burned myself out clearing deep sugar snow just to have a place to pitch said tents. I've been crowded with too many a' person and too much a' gear under one roof. The ground can be a cold, hard, inhospitable host. An Exped mat has made things better, but I still do not sleep well on the ground. I usually wake up (if I slept) with my neck kinked, feeling exhausted and not rested.
I take groups of scouts out a few times a year. I also take my family out from time to time. Part of what brings me here is a desire to get out of the Scout group tent, to sleep in peace. Part of it is comfort. Most of it is, "Can this really work for me?" Could I really swing from a hammock and get a good night's rest?
This is a path I've not yet traveled. Can you teach me the ways of the dark side?
