    Talking Hello from Sterling, VA:NEW to Hammock Camping

    New to Hammock Camping. Have spent many years camping/hiking, but with my bad back and my work schedule I have not been out there in many years. Then I heard of this Hammock Camping & I love it. Planning on doing a section of the AT with my son during his Spring Break. Any local suggestions for VA/MD/WV are welcomed.

    Oh yea! I have 2 ENO reactor hammocks and my old USMC MSS plus one I purchased off of Ebay.

    Welcome from Warrenton. AT with the son = great plan. Timing/weather coordination is everything. Mid June to Mid August can be pretty humid/buggy up there. My youngest son and camping buddy is in the USMC (in Japan).
    Enjoying the simple things in life.

    Welcome to the forum, from MI!

    Enjoy your stay here
    I've gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, make sure I stay here.


    When I see lovers' names carved into a tree, I don't think it's cute. I think it's strange how so many people take knives on a date.
