    Hi from Virginia!

    I got into Hammock camping last year when my buddy and I did 45 miles on the AT over 2 days. Hammocks were a great way to reduce the weight. I have a Hennessy Asym Ultralight, and it worked out great.

    I do most of my camping in West Virginia. Dolly Sods is my favorite place (my license plate is 39N79.4W). I've done 10 trips there, 5 in the winter. 2 of the trips were 3-4ft of snow on snowshoes. (The winter trips have so far been in tents).

    Now I'm trying to push the temperature limits of the hammock. I just finished making a Ray-Way backpacking quilt, and I am going to try and create my own underquilt. I've been finding this site extremely valuable as I research. I'm don't think I'll be able to hammock camp in below zero weather, but I'd like to push it down to 30.

    Thanks, and hope to see you out there!

    Love the license plate. Welcome to the forums from Indiana!
    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."
