I'm a Great Lakes Girl !!!

#1

Post by Karla (with a k) » Thu Jul 13, 2017 9:13 pm

I am Karla (with a k) and I live in Milwaukee, WI. I was born in MN and grew up in MI and have also lived in IN, AZ and KS. However, it's the Great Lakes that I am addicted to.

I started hammock camping in April 2016 when I attended my 1st hammock hang. I was planning to tent, but G-man talked me into borrowing his gear. Although we had a winter storm, I felt SO cozy in the hammock. The next month I purchased my 1st hammock and then tarp and then taught myself to sew and have made an underquilt, ridgeline organizer and double-ended stuff sacks.

I've been camping (at least one night a month) for the past 18 months.

I usually host a couple hammock hangs a year and love meeting new people and talking about hammocks. I hope I can meet you soon & hang with you sometime!

ps. I am teaching my cat to hammock camp with me. We've done one night, but it went REALLY well !!!

Hey there Karla! Welcome! Maybe you will get to do some of those super winter hammock challenges like old Shug! Down here, we only get to go for significant winter challenges on rare occasions.
