I am a newbie to hammock camping, but I have tent camped my whole life. I've recently started to get serious about backpacking and thought that hammock camping would allow me to cut down on weight and pack space. I have a couple buddies that hammock camp and can't wait to hit the trails with them. I am 30 years old and have a wonderful family with two boys that love the outdoors just as much as me. I am active in the Boy Scouts and the Cub Scouts with my son. I love teaching kids about the joy of camping and nature.
