    Hello from MN

    I've been backpacking for many years, casually hanging for a few years (I started with an HH to escape my viciously snoring tentmates), and I am interested in adapting my hammocking habits to a lighter and more frequently used setup.

    I did most of my hiking in the southeast as I lived in South Carolina for the past few years, so I am deprived up in these cornfields and I need to get some winter gear going!

    I've been reading through the threads for a few weeks. I love the ideas! I am interested in making my own gear...light light light.

    I take offense to that! We have plenty of awesomeness in MN. Does SC have 10,000 lakes? I didnt think so. Haha, WELCOME!
