    Hello from Southwest PA!!

    Hey there hangin hippies! I've been using a hammock setup for about a year now (eno one link) but now that I'm planning my AT thru hike I got the weight shedding gene in me!

    Looks like I'll be going with a WBBB 1.1 double layer hammock and a Zpack Cuben Hex Tarp.
    I'm up for suggestions though!

    But about me, 20 yrs old, been an electronics tech for 2 years.
    Quitting to thru hike and can not wait!

    Howdy neighbor! I'm over toward the Ohio line, opposite side of the 'Burgh from you. Looks like a **** fine weekend for some hanging, so I'm headed to Brady Run park in Chippewa for Ham Radio Field Day. If you're up north of the city at all this weekend, swing by!

    Welcome to the Forums! Am originally from Irwin, but live in GA now. Up hanging on the Laurel Highland Trail last year. Really miss those mountains.

    Can't wait to hear about your AT hike!

    Welcome from Indiana. Hope your AT hike goes as planned!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Thanks for the hospitality!

    I've been in Pennsylvania for about two Years now, and these mountains are what triggered my passion for outdoors. The laurel highlands trail is nice! If you are up for the hike, check out the warrior trail, it's a fun hike with some great places to hang!
