heading out and thanks!
Thanks everyone for all you help and info while I sorted out my hammock set up. I am leaving thrusday or friday, 15th or 16th for springer to start my thru hike on the AT. No later than the 19th in case i freak out and need a day or two to collect my self.
my set up is the ENO hammock with their straps
a speer pea pod
a mac cat deluxe tarp
4 super lite MSR stakes and some various parachute cords
a 35 degree synthetic bag
should be fine, I hope, as testing here in NC has been in the 40's at nite this past week and I was fine without the bag. and really comfortable ( i fell asleep one afternoon doing a test hang in just a few minutes )
so thanks again everyone! here is my trail journal
Good luck... enjoy... HYOH...hyoh ( hang your own hammock).
Man, I am so envious of you guys beginning your thru hikes. I sit at work a lot and think "I could be on the trail right now.."
Good luck, jettjames, and best wishes.
Safe Journey!!!...and Good Fortune!!
