    Hello from St-Jerome

    Hi everyone,

    I am Snapper (my trailname from my 2012 PCT thruhike) from Hamburg, Germany - but currently I live in St-Jerome, Quebec. I recently bought into the idea of hammocking, as I was sectioning a part of the AT last year with a friend who was sleeping in the weight weenie micro.
    I am going to hang my new shelter system soon, once temperatures allow and let you know if I decide to go hammocking the whole AT (plan for this year...)

    Thanks for this fantastic forum and the sheer mass of information that can be found!

    Cheers Snapper

    Welcome Snapper!

    I am also from Quebec, living on the South Shore in Longueuil.

    If you are planing an AT thru-hike, you will need to invest in some TQ and UQ, meaning low temperatures won't be an excuse not to hang !

    À bientôt !

    Welcome to HF, Snapper!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22

    I actually ordered the UQ and TQ from hammockgear, but the 40F ones. I will be using extra layers and carry a downjacket. I will be starting late and go fast though, so I will not hit too low temps hopefully
