Grand RE-Opening

I have not been able to heal correctly and went to the doctor's office today. Long story short is this:

It seems, according to the doctor. my body is rejecting the sutures within my body. The doctor had to cut me open again and remove the sutures. so I am back to where I was when I was released from the hospital back in November '11. I have a gaping hole with a long tubular hole going into my gut about three or four inches. And yes I have to pack the hole with gauze. So if the hole does not heal in time for my backpacking trip, I may not be able to go on the trip. I can change the dressing on a cut, but can't pack gauze into myself because I cant see the opening and since I am numb around the area, I cant feel anything.

Wish me luck.

New site on the way

I am working with a friend on a new site dedicated to camping. Specifically, hammock camping in Georgia. The site is "GaHammockBros.com. We will be doing gear reviews as well as trip reports and camp meal ideas to just name a few. We will have a blog here and a YouTube chanel as well- all with the same name. If you are interested in camping and would like to learn about hammock camping, then please subscribe to both the blog and the YouTube chanel. We are going to fill all three with awesome information.

Planning for a trip on the Approach Trail of the AT

We are planning on a trip up the Approach Trail on the AT. The Approach trail is supposed to be the "roughest" section of the entire AT (so I hear) but it is for sure the roughest section of the AT in Georgia so we are all looking forward to it. I will post the pics on my website under Trip Reports so look for that.

I am also starting work on a longer story with the hopes of getting it up to novel status so wish me luck.
