My son and I are going to the Northern Tier scout base next summer. We are both avid hangers (can't get the rest of the scouts on board with this). Can we take our hammocks to the boundry waters? It would be lighter and absolutely more comfortable for me.
Also, can anyone give me any insight into Leave No Trace and how they feel about hammock camping. I have a guy in our scout group that is a very experienced and avid backpacker (AT guy) and he insist that hammocking is not leave no trace.
I think it is much more enviromentally friendly if done properly. Your thoughts?
