Gave up the backpacking hobby a few years back. Still day hiked, sometimes 16 hours continual strenuous walking, climbing but could not take laying on hard ground any more like I used to.
At home we switched to a waterbed out of necessity.
Maybe hammocks will help get me back on the longer trails.
Leaning towards Bear Mtn. Bridge after a little investigation, but we'll have to see what I end up with...
