I'm a 61 y/o homesteader. I breed LaMancha dairy goats, American buff, American Blue, Embden and Cotton Patch geese. Of course I have ducks, guineas, chickens and a pig and 2 Great Pyranees to keep them safe. I've done a lot of camping and yrs ago did some backpacking. Don't want to sleep on the ground any more. Woke up in the middle of too many nights, wet and cold and miserable. Planning to thru hike the AT NOBO next spring. So I decided to do it with a hammock and now I'm gathering my gear and learning what I need to know to do it as comfortably, safely and reasonably inexpensively as possible.
Appreciate how freely you folks share your knowledge!
