    New guy in MN

    Hey all! I am Robert, I live in Minnesotah and am fairly new to hammock camping. Thanks to this website and Shug I am a well-educated newb.

    We don't have much for equipment yet, but that is going to be changing soon. I ordered her a WBBB 1.0 and an OES 4 Season Tarp. I plan on hanging two hammocks under a single tarp.

    The wife and I are looking forward to backpack camping this year and hanging out with fellow hangers.

    -Robert

    Cool! I get to be first to say "welcome to the forum"!

    Get ready for addiction to kick in hard.

    You're off to a good start. Take advantage of all those other experienced MN hangers.

    Welcome to HF. You should try and make it to the Northern hang. There will be plenty of people there and a great time with some fellow hangers.

    Not coordinated enough for either. The closest I came to riding a unicycle was when I popped a wheelie on my motorcycle and that was unintentional.

    welcome!
    There's enough Minnesoters current and past on HF that we could form up a nice 12-step group. "My name is Grizz and I'm a Minnesoter".

    you can take the boy out of Bemidji, but you can't take the Bemidji out of the boy....

    Welcome from yet another Minnesota resident.

    (I'm NOT a Minnesotan as my in-laws remind me on an almost weekly basis. I just live here. )
    If your lucky enough to be outdoors, your lucky enough!
