Episode #25  Dutch and Skunkape - "Why should you try hammock camping?"

**Notes with guest**   **My Commentary** Closing Question: I am striving to be more present and "real", hence Unfiltered. What ways are you trying to be more Unfiltered in your life now? **Show Notes** In this episode, Courtney talks with Paul...


In this episode, Courtney talks with Paul "Skunkape" Collins, of the Hammock Hangers podcast, and Thom "Dutch" Ressler, founder of Dutchware. They talk about thru-hiking the AT with a hammock, what it is like to innovate how we hike and they answer the question: Why should you try hammock camping?

Paul "Skunkape" Collins discovered hammocks back in 2011 when he was planning for a 2012 thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail. His first hammock was the Clark North American. He currently owns 11 hammocks from different cottage vendors, and loves each one of them. A few years ago, in 2020 he became one of the organizers of HangCon, which is the largest annual hammock gathering event in the country, held near Tampa, FL. Paul now has a podcast on the Hiking Radio Network.

Thom "Dutch" Ressler thru-hiked the AT in 2003 with a homegrown hammock. His hobby has now become Dutchware, a wildly popular resource for all things hammock!

I discovered hammocks back in 2011 when I was planning for my 2012 thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. My first hammock I ever owned was the Clark North American. I currently own 11 hammocks from different cottage vendors, and love each one of them. A few years ago, in 2020 I became one of the organizers of HangCon, which is the largest annual hammock gathering event in the country.
