Hi, I am new here, new to hanging and new to attempting backpacking. I have a inner pang telling me to get out and backpack. It actually is burning me up inside....if you get what I mean.
I have only car camped and day-hiked, so I had no need for carrying my sleeping area or worrying about weight.
Here is what I am thinking of purchasing. Let me know if I am in good shape for someone starting out that isn't willing to just yet put a lot of money into this venture.
I am 5'8", 135 lbs. Will be testing out in upper michigan for three nights in the second week of august.
HH expedition classic
Snakeskins for storage
carabiners (2) for quick hang method
repel rings (4) for quick hang method
Okay, so what I am forgetting?
