    Long Time Lurker from Central VA

    I feel remiss that I haven't introduced myself and I expect my reputation has preceded me in some areas of the forum.

    I've been a hammocker for several years but only recently got serious about getting my pack size and weight down and most recently into DIY. Mostly because I am tweaking my motorcycle pack for more and more lengthy trips.

    I come from ground dwelling tipi living and tipi mods with stoves and what not. Mostly with the hammock I am fascinated with the equipment and the minimalism that can be obtained. I'm a gear freak.

    So, FYI, I live about 12 miles from the AT where the BRP meets the Skyline Drive. So if anyone hiking through needs a rest stop near Waynesboro, (I'm on the East side of the mountain range but it's still friendly here,) feel free to hit me up for an overnight. I have room and will pick you up and take you for ice cream or pizza! I often offer a lift to hikers on their way into Waynesboro for supplies.

    So Cheers to all! Happy to have joined the group and look forward to meeting others.

    ttfn,
    HFG

    welcome!

    I lived in Charlottesville for a while going to school, got up by your coordinates as often as I could...particularly in the summer when the temperature difference between down in the valley and up on the ridge might be 10 degrees.

    Yes I'm in Crozet which is halfway between BRP mm 0 and Charlottesville. Beautiful area if I do say so myself. I greatly enjoy going from my 768' elevation up to 3500' in about a half an hour. There's a whole different atmosphere up there.

    Gumbo, Greyson Highlands is quite a bit more than a stone's throw from me. I guess Va is VA unless you live here. Pretty country down there though. Have a nice time!

    Thanks again all and Flatline, I grew up in Winston-Salem, but I won't hold where you're from against you.

    Word gets around.

    Crozet Pizza is incredible. Fodors, Zagat's, you name it they've reviewed it. And highly recommended it.

    But it's a secret... shhhh...
