Cycling UK to S. Korea with hammock
The subject line tells most of the story!
Here's a link to the blog: http://ijustfeltlikecycling.blogspot.co.uk/
I'm setting off on Monday 2nd July and you're welcome to follow the trip (and MORE than welcome to give hammock-specific advice) in this thread.
I can answer all your questions about cycle touring, or so I'd like to think, but hammock-wise I'm a confirmed noob.
Thanks again to the hammock forummers who've made preparation for this trip all the easier. For example, here's a thread on my amateurish attempt to make a TQ: link
Another edit: I should probably tell you what I'm using:
Hammock: WBBB 1.1 dbl - added karabiners to standard straps as the soft shackles I got from Mat, whilst strong, looked like they'd fray.
Tarp: Zpacks 11x8 cuben - I like.
UQ: Snugpak - May need extra filling in cold winter but I love it. Less than $100 USD and I can almost make a peapod out of it.
TQ: DIY based on UKHammocks/others
Dreamhammock wintersock - used it a couple of nights in the frosty UK spring and it grabbed a lot of condensation but it will stave off death in winter.
Thermarest for ground sleeping/extra insulation
Zpacks cuben groundsheet for going to ground
Other kit (bike, clothes etc.), feel free to ask about in here if you're interested. I'm fairly happy with my kit list but it's an each-to-his-own situation.
