    Trail Journals list

    I like reading thru hiker Trail Journals and especially those that are using hammocks. Often we learn of them right here on HF but often I simply come across them when checking the gear lists from various Journals. I think it would be both useful and fun if whenever we discover a thru hiker that's hammocking, we could post their journal info here at a specific location. I just signed Bat's journal and plan on following it....good luck Bat.

    Anyone else think this would be a good idea?

    Post them in this thread. We can sticky it if there's enough entries.

    OK...I'll start with this one. It doesn't list a hammock in her gear list but she mentions it in her first Prep entry and later. She finished last year. I'd like this as a learning tool so in my opinion it doesn't really matter if the hikers are currently hiking or have completed their hikes. I just want to learn from their experiences on a long distance hike.

    I only know her from a couple of posts at WB I saw, and the entries in her journal, but she seems like she will be fun to follow. She starts Sunday, and was talking about an underquilt at one point so I'm assuming she's hammocking. If she's here under a different name, that just shows how out of the loop I am now.

    Certain. She took two years due to issues. But a hammock hanger-evangalist the entire time.
