    HOwdy from Southern WV

    Looking to get started doing some serious pack hunting in the future. Need all the help I can get to make sure my tootsie doesn't get to cold. Seriously, I find myself gravitaing to become more so one with the wild and nature. I was born and raised in the outdoors hunting and fishing and always enjoy it. But, on October the 6th, 2010, my life changed forever. I was diagnosed with cancer and underwent the surgeries and chemo required to contiue living.

    It was hard on me and I have been off the stuff for over a year now and caner free, due to the grace of the Lord! I am getting better everyday. Durning one of the chemo treatments, I decided while laying in the hospital that if given the chance to live on, I would do my best to enjoy it and no longer talk about doing anything that needed done.

    So here I am. I have never had much of a use before just pack camping, but that has all changed. I am looking forward to doing some serious hunting and hiking oin the future and need all the advice possible to maximize my money spent. Thanks again for having me and God Bless

    Welcome from Florida and welcome back from the abyss!
    Look for some group hangs in your area in the "trip planning" forum and you'll get to see a lot of rigs first-hand and get a fast-track education.
