Re: Appalachian Trail adventure book by hammock-hanging hiker...

Good Day Aaron, N9ANE and Dick, KD0CGS:
Seems to be a disproportionate number of hammock hangers that are hams,
not quite certain why? When I wrote the book it was my intention to give
just enough info about ham radio so that it might spark interest in a
few readers...that has certainly been the case.
Hiking and ham radio go well together. I was able to communicate over
the entire length of the trail, and using Morse code, was able to lay in
my hammock with headphones on and using my hand to send the code, the
other hikers were not even aware that I was using a radio. This, in
contrast to cell phones where I usually had to leave the immediate area
so as not to distract others.
Interestingly, the book is about my hike of the AT, and having heart
surgery right in the middle of the hike, yet if you look at the various
tags for the book on amazon.com, it ranks as the most popular amateur
radio book at the moment: Ham Tags <http://tinyurl.com/3jq49q5>
Even though I did take 300 days off for the heart surgery (six-artery
bypass), I feel I have braggin' rights: I finished, Bill Bryson didn't!
In the book I emphasized how happy I was with my hammock on the hike. To
me, it had so many advantages over a tent. I didn't even carry a roll-up
sleeping pad. On a few occasions I even purposely hung it over places
that a tent would prove impossible: a stream, a pile of logs and a
boulder. I had fun with it.
Oh, I'll be at the Dayton Hamvention this year and do my AT presentation
on Sunday morning (May 22) at 10:30. Stop by if you're attending the
convention. Spread the word, I'd love to have a full house. Forums:

Just thought I'd throw in my $0.02 to the conversation...from Alaska, which
may be DX territory for some of you... I've been a Tech for a about 18 mos,
studying for my General.

Maybe we'll see  new hammock hangers as a result of it. I've had a
number of readers write me to tell me they've gone off to get their ham
radio licenses as a result of reading the book, I haven't had anyone
indicate they decided on a hammock because of it.
Today Amazon.com <http://tinyurl.com/248ymjg>   sent out a mass emailing
recommending THREE HUNDRED ZEROES <http://blog.threehundredzeroes.com/>
as a travel adventure read. If you enjoy non-fiction adventure, check it
