I'm 20 and I don't know how but two-three months ago I have started researching UL Backpacking (mostly through Andrew Skurka's book)
I am actively researching the subject and starting this coming spring I will have my first hang! (BTW I took me a month to figure out that hammock is a way to go, just forget ground)
My gear list on google doc's so far. I am pretty sure I will ask questions about hammocks soon.
In a meantime: All the best in 2013!
