    Hello from Pittsburgh

    I've been camping for as long as I can remember, backpacking since I was 13, and have wanted to try using a hammock instead of a tent for a while. Now that I'll be staying at college over the summer (and can't bring my tent from back home) I finally have an excuse to get one so I've been researching different hammocks as much as possible and made an account to help with that.

    Welcome from York Co. Pa. I plan on hiking the Laurel Highlands Hiking Trail http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/statepar...idge/index.htm over Memorial Day in southwestern Pa. I have an extra Hennessy backpacker if you would like to try it out. If you’re interested send me a PM and we can work out the details.
    Peace,
    Gris

    G'day from Indiana. HF is a great place to hang out.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."
