I like to backpack, fish and hunt. Although I live close to streams that produce 40lb Salmon, my favorite fishing is alongside high-mountain lakes. I'm doing more and more solo trips now - just me and a dog or three.
I'm on the other side of the half-century mark and have been backpacking since high school. As the years accumulate, the ground gets harder, and a good nights sleep can be hard come by on the trail.
I bumped into some "hangers" last year in a remote part of Idaho, at the tree line. They really gave me a sales pitch on the wonders of a hammock. That night, lying on the hard ground under a tarp, with lighting and hail, I started wondering if they might be right.
So I'm likely to become a hanger in the near future.
