    Hello from Eastern Iowa

    Hey fellow hangers. I live in Eastern Iowa/ Cedar Rapids area and I love hammocking (spell check says that hammocking is not a real word...spell check is wrong, it's not just a real word, it's an obsession. I even sleep in a hammock at home most nights....because I like a good nights sleep).

    I would love to hike/camp/hang with some other midwesterners sometime. Has anyone here done the Ice Age Trail? I'm doing a 3 day on the IAT with an outdoors group soon, looking forward to it. My ultimate goal is to start the Appalachian Trail next year and complete it over the course of two years (can't take 6 mos off from hubby and kiddo).

    I would especially love to know if there are any other women hikers out there who might like a hiking/camping partner occasionally. I like the idea of solo/together trips HYOH and then camp together. (I'm over 40 and not fast, so it would be a go your own pace).

    Looking forward to a frozen butt hang sometime too!

    All the best!
    Beth

    I'm not exactly sure of the route. It's being led by someone else but we are meeting up near Medford.

    The WI hangers here at HF are a pretty active group when it comes to group hangs and you're always welcome to join in. Check out the hangs hosted by Tumbleweed located at Da Shack. His acreage is right up against the IAT and there is always someone eager to take a walk in the woods.
    The game is the best teacher.
