I on the other hand love sleep by a river, I like to travel by kayak.. I also like to take a book, but I almost never read it.
Ive done lots of solo camping and the 1st few times I was nervous. Now is rather camp in NF alone than in a campground.
Deffinetly hang your food. Don't eat near the hammock. "There more scared of you than you are of them" ya right.
