Hi All. I live in the LA area (SoCal, not the state). I'm a longtime member of The Lightweight Backpacker, Trailspace and VFTT. I'm also a moderator at TLB and Trailspace (similar sceennames as here). If you belong to those sites you may recognize my screenname. My primary interest is winter camping and I'm not a hammock user yet. I joined to learn more about the equipment after watching a bunch of Shug Emery's videos on YouTube.
