Hi everyone. After a few weeks of lurking I finally got a chance to get out and hang. I neglected to bring snacks, so I was only out for a few hours... but I definitely have a new favourite reading spot.
I'm in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and have been looking for a camping setup. One day I borrowed a cloth hammockl; ten hours later it was too dark to read and I knew two things: #1 I needed to find dinner, #2 I didn't want to sleep on the ground with this many trees around. I was going to DIY my hammock and TQ but found great deals from BIAS and here on HF.
I have a BIAS WW (with Knotty's mod and ARL, thanks Brian/tncamper), BIAS bugnet, and DIY climashield apex TQ (made by G.L.P., fantastic work). I also have materials for a silnylon hex-tarp and insultex UQ (from DIY Gear Supply, thanks Scott) just waiting for me to find a thread injector.
I'd write more, but I see a beautiful day outside my window (and my BIAS is already strapped to my camelbak) so I'm going to go hike until I find two inviting trees...
