For all yall northern / yankee types, that's how we say Hi in the South (right after we take a swig of some good sweet tea).
Well not too much to my story, I've been an outdoorsman all of my life. I grew up in scouting and hiked all over the NC, SC, VA and TN areas all through my high school years.
I made Eagle, graduated high school, then life kicked in. I went on to college and joined the Air Force where I earned a BSBA with a concentration in Project Management. I served 4 years of active duty stationed at Hurlburt Field in Florida working on MC-130H Combat Talon II aircraft.
I left the Air Force and moved back home where I joined the NC Air National Guard as a SATCOM operator / maintainer. I now work in RF transmissions for the 263rd Combat Communications Squadron in Albemarle, NC.
I have a 1.5 yo daughter and am married to my awesome wife. I have not been camping that much since high school and I committed to begin going more frequently.
I've always been a traditional tent hiker and want to go lightweight so I got myself a GTUL, ordered some amsteel to make my own whoopies, gonna make my own straps...just need to figure out a tarp...but on a budget.
Anyway, that would be about it.
Have a good one,
