Been lurking for a while, picking up tips and finally decided to introduce myself.
I'm living in Georgetown, KY, but grew up outside of Boston..Seems someone "stole" my normal alias - "Muskrat" - so had to come up with something new..and I wasn't very creative that day....
I work with Aardvark and been listening to him talk about his hammocks for the past year, not really understanding the significance...until a friend brought one of his DIY's on a rafting trip. I fell in love, and am now mildly obsessed with making my own for my girlfriend and myself. Haven't done much backpacking, but we both enjoy day hiking and car camping are looking to start doing longer trips.
So far this site has been a great resource, and I hope I can contribute to it!
