Hi, All. Been lurking on these pages for a while now. I guess it's time for me to come out of the tent.
Spent the last nine years camping most every weekend with the Scouts. I usually get in a 5-7 day backpacker in once or twice a year, too. I'm tired of sleeping on the ground. I've carried a Beyer(?) in my pack off and on but mostly used it for naps.
I'm going to DIY a hammock, suspension, tarp as soon as SWMBO gives me some thread injector lessons.
Oh, I'm in the Portland, OR area.
