    Greetings from Akron!

    Hey all,

    Been browsing for a few days and decided to join so that I could ask some questions and learn a little bit before embarking on my very first hammock setup of my own! I will save those for it's own thread. Anyways...

    I'm from Akron, Ohio, and I get to enjoy the woods on trips a half a dozen times a year. Mostly close(ish) but down to WV, Kentucky, and various other places in this region. I'm a 'mid-level' experienced backpacker, having been on some mildly difficult trips thus far. I'm a certified GEAR JUNKIE!!!! Nothing quite like expanding the gear set, and that's what's led me to here.

    I just graduated from college, looking to begin a career here pretty soon. I am very excited for this weather to break so that I can get back out to the woods!!!!!

    Thanks everyone in advance for the wealth of knowledge and insight.

    Welcome from Cleveland. You have only just begun if you just got here. Cuyahoga Valley NP is a great place to get out for day hikes and Allegheny Forest is only a few hours away in PA.

    Ok so I was going to contact you at some point (in my question thread). I saw your youtube video on the WW Micro, and may to pick your brain!

    I love the national parks around our area. I have to say, we are so very blessed to have some amazing natural beauty like that so close.

    Thanks for the warm welcome!
