    Can Spring come any sooner

    Am I the only one who wants winter to end. In Utah we are in the middle of a cold spell because the Wasatch mountain keeps traping crap polution and that makes it harder for the air to warm up. What I am trying to say is I want to pull out my hammock now. Anyone else wants to do the same thing?
    Bacon and Camping makes me happy.

    Pollution? I am intrigued.

    Here on the east coast winter has finally arrived! I am so happy and hope it sticks around. It's final below 30 and snowing.

    So? Pull the hammock out and go hang someplace! Over a dozen of us just hung at the NEHHA in the snow in MA.

    With the proper insulation, you can hang year-round! Find a couple of friends, and do a winter hang!

    I love winter hiking so much that I'm leaving South Florida (the Land of Perpetual Summer) to head for New Hampshire & Maine next week!

    I want spring to come too! I understand you can sleep warmly in a hammock with the right gear, but I still don't want to be cold when I am not sleeping!

    Tonight on the NBC National News they did a story about how bad the pollution was in SLC. Looked pretty nasty. Hope it clears soon

    Yes sirre, I agree with you, I'm sick and tired of the inversion. I am also raring for spring to come so I can get out of the house. It's not just you. But if it's any consolation there looks like there is a good chance of more snow, at least a little ways north.
