    [QUOTE=islander;405049]Not sure how capable you might be, one thing I recommend is daily walks, 2-3 miles to train yourself and get used to distance walking. Eventually do it with some backpack weight too.
    Amazing how it will build up your muscles and endurance.

    Well in the plan my friend. Sage advice this is. I really don't anticipate an issue, and realistically it's my own personal hang up. I'm a big guy, and big guys aren't supposed to have physical issues. In the early das I used to get real embarrased when it would happen. I keep forgetting that this group is full of really cool people and I should/can just chill out and enjoy. Thanks for the words Mark.

    Counting the days for the arrival of my new bed!
    I was thinking maybe more of a caravan now instead of a car-pool. That way if I'm lost, I'm at least lost with people of like minded-ness, lol.

I'm sure most going will admit to being a newbie at one time, maybe not to being old. It's amazing what the olddog has learned from this group of hammockers at HF. Intend to learn alot more on this weekend trip. Looking forward to meeting you and the others.
    Look forward to meeting you, man.
