    Talking First night in a hammock

    I am going out for my first hang on wed, its going to be a short trip, just a quick over nighter in Pinkney, MI, planned only 7 days before leaving, had to get out and try the hammock, I have been backpacking for many years but I'm new to hammocks.

    August here in MI is bad for the skeeters so I just got done spraying my hammock, clothes, buff and head net, I will have plenty of deet with me.

    I'm using the HH backpacker a thermarest z-lite CC pad, a Mountain hardware phantom 32 sleeping bag, theramarest stuff pillow case, an osprey talon 44, a soto micro regulator stove with GSI minimalist pot (just for tea, no cooking this trip just a few PB&J) my power stretch and REI ultralight rain jacket.
    I gear list is small so it should be a good simple trip, I will make a report when I get home, wish me a good sleep in my first hang.

    Good hanging BMW, also remember that Lexington Kentucky would be an awesome place for the next REI!

    2nd largest city in KY, metro area 1/2 million. 39.5% residents have at least Bachelors Degree, large industry base (Lexmark, Toyota, etc). UK campus (35,000 potential hangers lol). Currently 8(?) HF members live here.
