    I've felt the pull all my life...getting into a hammock is my way of assuaging the draw by being able to quickly and comfortably "camp" in my yard...something about sleeping outside in the cool/cold air does wonders for me.

    I just wish there were more places in the Chicagoland area (near by me) that I can legally camp out for some one nighters. Paying $25 to "camp" in a well manicured camp ground is not what I had in mind...but that's all I'm finding out here...

    I need to stealth camp some this winter...

    Where in southern Michigan are you headed? I'm always interested in finding more nearby places to hike and camp.

    The woods, the mountains, they call me. I live in a long valley that I drive the length of nearly every day. I see them, I can't help but look. They always look different, but they're always the same. And I wonder what it's like, right then, up there.

    Hopefully I'll find something soon. Too much of the woods is being taken down for strip malls and condos. Most of the open land I see is secured preserve, or marsh land...and I don't feel like mucking through marsh up to my knees to hang!

    Plus stealth camping means no fires....

    Oh I feel it. My wife is having a heck of a time keeping me at home. Every weekend I try to slip into our conversation, "I may go on a short hike this weekend" very casually.

    Haha!

    Pfft!! Up here in the "northland", we just wait for all that marsh to freeze! Won't be long, now!
