Been lurking for years so I figured I'd pipe up. I've been hanging for about four years and I refuse to be a ground dweller ever again. Started with a $20 hammock and a Big Agnes pad. Bought an ENO and made a DIY 3 season UQ. Finally graduated up to a Winter Incubator (delivered today). Year round hanging is going to be great.
I've camped/hiked/backpacked for 40 years. I remember when you could still buy a wood framed backpack. They were pretty comfortable but heavy. I used to pack 70 lbs of crap into the woods. Now I get by with 25 lbs or less including food, water and Glenlivet.
Spam and Kielbasa are my favorite trail meals, along with salad, Gouda and some good hard bread.
OK, I admit it. I'm addicted to those freeze dried NASA ice cream sandwiches.
