    Hanging in Maine

    Just started hiking a bit on the AT this summer and I got hooked. Have finished 4 overnight hikes on the trail over the past few weeks. I have spent a few nights in shelters and in tents. The shelters are great, but I can never get comfortable, even using a Thermo-Rest Trail-Lite pad. If you have ever been on the trail in maine you know it is an oddity to find 20 sq/ft without roots and/or rocks so a tent is simply not practical. After doing a little research I happily found the answer in the trees. I am now armed with a Hennessy Expedition with zipper entry and I love it! Planning my first overnight with it later this month.

    This is a great sight and I have learned a great deal from the forums.

    Thanks All!
