    Hello from MN

    Hello Hammock Forum...I am from Burnsville, MN. I have been camping my entire life. I have been a RV and tent camper my whole life and have been pretty content with it. About a year ago I got pretty serious into backpacking. Then after watching some Youtube videos (Shug, Raul Perez) I started to consider rocking a hammock instead of a tent. I bought a ENO double and have a Madcat Deluxe on the way. I am definitely looking forward to the info on this forum to make it a much better experience.
    P.S. I am also an electrician by trade (hence my user name)
    Thanks,
    ArcsandSparks

    Welcome to the forum. Lots of great people here and TONS of great information. Can't wait to hear how comfortable you find hammock camping to be.
    Warning: you will never want to go back to tent camping

    A great big welcome from southern Minnesota. Come on in, sit down and stay a while. If you ever have any questions reguarding hammocks or any of the other products of the like, this is the place to be.

    How do you get an RV into the Boundary Waters?
