Thread: Howdy from Hell

  1. #1

    Howdy from Hell

    Hi, folks! I'm Earthquake Girl, and I'm from right outside of Hell, MI. I've been lurking around on these forums for a couple of years and finally joined. A friend and I plan to hike the AT together in a couple of years, and this place has been a great resource as my interest in ultralight camping and backpacking's developed over the last few years.

    I teach yoga and own my own studio, but I was a geology major in college and spent a few years as a Cub Scout leader. I'm an experienced tent camper but this summer'll be my first time camping with a hammock. I'm very excited about it, but still undecided as to whether I want a HH or to make my own. I love to sew and design new things, so I'll probably end up doing both. =)

    I'm planning my first overnight hang a month from now, and I can't wait!

    Welcome for south Louisiana, if you like sewing going DIY is the thing to do but if you don't trust yourself yet then Im sure you've seen all of the cottage industry sites. I've finally graduated to sewing my own gear but still love my WBBB.
