About Me I am a 50 year old grad student (finishing 2013). I think about hiking, camping, and rock climbing far more than I practice any of them. Today I am determined to thru-hike the AT north to South starting in late May. I became a member, in part, to gain access to directions for a DIY top quilt. My daughter gave me a camping hammock for Christmas, which has provided me with more than enough research possibilities to keep me from writing my thesis.

Thanks Cameron, I will undoubtedly bring along my blackberry phone, but the heavier tablet might stay home. Nevertheless, I am psyched to try the online idea out. I imagine I can even improve my...
