    Hello from St-Jerome

    Hi everyone,

    I am Snapper (my trailname from my 2012 PCT thruhike) from Hamburg, Germany - but currently I live in St-Jerome, Quebec. I recently bought into the idea of hammocking, as I was sectioning a part of the AT last year with a friend who was sleeping in the weight weenie micro.
    I am going to hang my new shelter system soon, once temperatures allow and let you know if I decide to go hammocking the whole AT (plan for this year...)

    Thanks for this fantastic forum and the sheer mass of information that can be found!

    Cheers Snapper

    Welcome Snapper!

    I am also from Quebec, living on the South Shore in Longueuil.

    If you are planing an AT thru-hike, you will need to invest in some TQ and UQ, meaning low temperatures won't be an excuse not to hang !

    À bientôt !

    Welcome to HF, Snapper!
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.

    I actually ordered the UQ and TQ from hammockgear, but the 40F ones. I will be using extra layers and carry a downjacket. I will be starting late and go fast though, so I will not hit too low temps hopefully
