    Noob from New Hampshire

    Really new to hanging, but love it so far. Planning an AT section hike (Springer Mtn GA to Damascus VA) March-April 2013. Any advice you can give me for hanging on the Appalachian Trail in late winter/early spring would be really appreciated! I've been lurking for a couple of months, and I'm really impressed with the helpfulness and ingenuity of a lot of folks on this forum. Looking forward to any thoughts and ideas you think might help.

    A hearty welcome to HF from Michigan! Hope you get good advice. I like watching videos. For fun, read A Walk In The Woods.
