    Exclamation Another From Michigan (Thumb)

    Howdy, everyone. My backpacking experience can be summed up as a "long time listener, first time caller." I've always been a outdoorsman and have dreamed of throwing on a pack and getting lost for a few days. Finally, last January a buddy and I planned a trip for North Manitou Island and during my list making and gear acquisitioning I decided to go with a hammock. We both went with Clark Jungles. Last weekend was our trip and after spending a weekend in a hammock I dont think sleeping in a tent is an option anymore . I just wanted to introduce myself a little and I hope everyone has a rockin day
