Trek Light Adventures: A Look Back on the Hammock Adventure of a Lifetime

Thank you. With all sincere honesty your hammocks put us at the tops of trees, beneath bridges, above rivers, on hillsides outside of farm cottages, on cliff sides overlooking oceans, on top of Maya temples… There is a special serenity when you carry what you sleep in as simple as a hammock. It’s something that astounds other travelers at the sight but always draws them to realize what they’re missing in their pack. Thank you Seth for the opportunity to share our stories. Joe and I had taken the time to do this only because we have been so grateful for your support and of course the amazing Trek Light Hammocks. Word up and keep doing what you’re doing.

And one message that I picked up on and carried with me after reading through Emerson and Thoreau is to believe in yourself, because that is genius.

What follows is a verbatim letter from Andy Fyfe, who along with Joe Lipnosky, made up the ‘Team Free Base’ duo whose adventures we chronicled in the past as they traveled through Central and South America using their Trek Light hammocks every step of the way.   I asked Andy recently to recap some of the later adventures of their trip and what results is a trip down memory lane which anyone who has experienced both the beauty and wear and tear of true, free-wheeling travel can surely relate to.

I want to say a sincere thank you to Joe and Andy for being such great proponents of the Trek Light lifestyle and sharing their adventures and amazing photos with all of us.  I know there are many of you out there who have brought along your hammocks and Eco Totes on adventures both near and far and I would love to feature more of your stories here on the site.  If you’ve taken or are planning to take a Trek Light Adventure down the road, please get in touch or leave a comment on this post.  Keep on trekkin’….
