Greetings form an SUL Convert!
Whats up everyone? Names Justin and I am from the SF Bay Area. I've spent the last several years working down to being a SUL backpacker but have found I really hate sleeping on the ground so after many months of deliberation I am joining you in the trees.
Currently I am using a HH hyperlite with a whoopie sling conversion until I find the time to build myself a version of Sgt. Rocks Ghost hammock, make a HUG half bug net, and make some dynaglide UCRs. MY insluation is a JRB nest UQ and a 20 degree Golite TQ. With the rest of my backpacking kit I am down to something like 7.6 lbs. base weight.
My goal is to get it back down as much as possible but maybe not all the way to SUL :lol: My thoughts are leaning to adding a HG 4 season cuben tarp, a warbonnet yeti 3 season under quilt and using my GG nightlite that is currently my pack frame for my legs.
So far this is the most interesting and helpful forum I have ever visited. I've been working through some technical issues with the forum that attoll is being great about so have been reading and browsing for a few weeks now.
I have to give a shout out to Shug, Srg. Rock, and JustJeff for all their great posts and videos. While I have not gotten to interact with any of you yet, your information has been amazing and I am really looking forward to picking your brains. By the way Shugs videos are the best and I have not laughed so hard in a long time while learning so much. Thanks for all your input everyone! I really look forward to being a part of this community.
