    Hel>---<lo from West Virginia

    hellow. i am 16. I have been back packing since i was 6. My father (on the trail "sherwin williams") just reminded me that i was 9 when i actually started backpacking (before i just walked and he carried my backpack). I enjoy backpacking. Every part of backpacking appeals to me, the aching muscles, the smell of my sleeping bag, the food (i refuse to eat dehydrated meals). The only thing i don't like is taking craps in the sticks.
    I'm a sophomore in high school. I am smart, not to tot my own horn, but because if this i like to think, therefore i enjoy making my own gear. Like anyone, i want to lighten my load, so i can go farther and have more fun. Hammocks just make sense.

    Welcome from SC. I sure wish I had discovered hammock camping when I was your age.

    Hey, Woodduck. You sound okay. What's your best piece of DIY gear, so far?

    Someday you will realize that taking a crap in the sticks is one of life's small pleasures. No rush, though.

    welcome to the madness.

    Brings back memories

    My daughter started going on hikes with when she turned 4 she insisted on carrying her own backpack. She wanted to carry (for her) a large yellow backpack (empty of course) that when viewed from the rear looked like a backpack with legs going down the trail.
