    Newbie in Northern Michigan

    I have already made a few posts so I thought I had better introduce myself. I am a Spanish teacher here in Northern Michigan (Petoskey). I am hoping to hike the Camino de Santiago next summer and I am sure a hammock would be the way to go ultralightweight, especially with the warm weather in Spain.

    I just made my first hammock and am ready to try it out this week when the weather is supposed to hit 50 degrees (balmy for Northern Michigan in March). Any other folks from up my way? I would love to get to a hang close to home sometime.

    Welcome from another Michiganian. Spend a lot of time on the NCT and the Manistee river in that area. Not too far from you. Lots of Michigan hangs, so stay tuned.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
