    Hammock Hiker from New Brunswick Canada.

    Hi all.My names Matt and I've been a hammock camper since 2007. My first hammock was a Hammock Bliss and the first time sleeping in the air changed my perspective on camping entirely.Later I scrimped and saved and bought a Clark North American in 2008 and I never looked back.I have since added a DD travel hammock to my collection and have spent over a dozen nights out this past summer in it. I'm currently in the process of waiting for my Warbonnet Blackbird Double layer 1.7 to arrive so I can take it for a trip into the back country.
    I thru hike a long (50km) Hiking trail every summer and I was the first among my buddies to convert to hammocks full time. Now, tents are a rarity out there on the Fundy Footpath.
    I look forward to getting to know you all and learning all I can about hammocks, Tarps and all those great bits that make life comfortable.

    Welcome. This is turning out to be a great place to learn from others. It would also seem to be a good place to meet potential new hiking partners too.

    Hope to run into you when I get back to NB this summer.

    Regards

    Jungle Jim

    Welcome! I grew up in New Brunswick, now living in Maine. My brother (member name: myles to go) still lives in NB and was the one that got me started down this addictive path. Just curious, and if you don't mind, in what town in NB do you live?
