Subject: Re: [BackpackGearTest] Application for the Explorer Ultra-Lite
Hammock from Hennessy
I'd like to apply to test the Explorer Ultra-Lite Hammock by Hennessy.
Here are my specs and experience details.
AGE -- 28
Location--Missoula, MT, USA
Backpacking experience--I have been hiking
and camping for the past 24 years. My father was a scout master when I
was young so I went on a lot of trips with his scout troop from age 4
on up. My family also visited Yellowstone, Glacier and The Grand Teton
National Parks regularly when I was growing up, which always entailed
camp outs and day hikes. Every summer we went on several camping trips
and did plenty of hiking--primarily in Montana, Wyoming and the Pacific
Northwest. I started backpacking a year ago and have gradually been
working on increasing the distance and elevation gain of my trips. I
have backpacked all over Western Montana in the past year, with a
higher concentration of trips in the areas within an hour or two of
Missoula. Nearly all of these trips have been at an elevations greater
than 4000 ft with elevation gains of 500 ft or greater over the course
of the hike. I take a couple of backpacking trips each month. I also
take regular car camping trips and hike nearly every weekend.
Thanks, Peggy Dodson
