    Howdy from the Cornbelt!

    Hey folks, nice site. I've been an air canoe-er from way back (the 70's), made some of my own, now looking into the more advanced tech for backpacking/camping. Great community here, looking forward to chatting with you all....Later!

    Welcome to the forums. My Dad's family was from up that way. Corn belt indeed!

    Good to have you. Meeting some of the others in person is one of the best ways to work out the kinks!

    Hey thanks everyone...Thanks for the invite Gargoyle, I'll have to take a rain check. I've been up that way, to Newaygo and Ludington...love the area. BTW, I'm diggin' the rolling rig you fabbed...pretty cool. I do alot of river island camping from my jon boat. My hammocking has been relegated to Spring and Fall cuz of the bugs. That's why I'm gearing up for an enclosed setup.

    I've spent most the afternoon on the site, happy I found it...It's going to be a great resource, for the insights, ideas and the people.

    While I know 'Northern Illinois' covers some milage, from Galena to Zion, I'm going to say its good to see another local all the same.

    I know there are some other locals hanging around here somewhere, back when I joined there was brief talk of getting a hang together over west at the Palisades.
