I've been lurking here for a while, and finally decided to jump into this hanging thing. You guys are an entertaining bunch!
Living in a northern suburb in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. I've been a tent camper for many years. I've taken a lot of BWCA canoe trips in the past, but have been mostly car camping these days. I'm five months shy of 60 yrs old, and decided I needed to get back into enjoying the wilderness again on a more intimate level while I still can. Having read about the great trails here in MN, especially the SHT, I decided to ease myself into backpacking. Being overweight with bad knees, I am looking for beginner trails, and light gear. Thinking short weekend hikes (1-2 nights) this fall.
I've ordered the following:
Warbonnet Blackbird 1.7 double layer (waiting to be shipped)
Warbonnet Superfly (shipped)
JRB Greylock 3 UQ (delivered)
I'll eventually get a top quilt, but will use my sleeping bag for now.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to this new activity!
