Hi all, I've been a long-time lurker but have decided that, if I'm going to embark on this DIY hammocking adventure, I should give some sort of formal introduction.
I'm a big ol' bird nerd and aspiring Ornithologist. I just graduated from college, so I can hardly afford gas - much less expensive hiking gear! Hence DIY hammock gear seems like an achievable, reasonable goal. I'd like to thru-hike the AT in the future, so hammocks also have that ultralight, hang-anywhere appeal. Woo!
Plus what better place for a bird-lover to sleep than in the trees!
