I have just arrived in BSF, will be done hiking 29th or possibly 30th at the latest, depending on my speed. Traveled through many "out in the middle of nowhere" places to arrive at the jordan motel, got lost twice. Total road time was around 2.5 hours. The surroundings at night (mostly interstate and fields) are'nt very attractive. Looking forward to getting out of jamestown tennesse as fast as possible, and to the trail! Will be documented with videos, going to bed now, later.
One gear question:
How do you guys like using big agnes inflatable pads in your hammocks. Right now looking at my gear, i am torn between taking my BA (r value 4.1) or my thermarest (r value 2.6) . Conditions are going to be cold, with temperatures feeling like 20. Dont want to slide off inflatable pad, and dont know if 2.6 + JRB no sniv TQ + JRB no snv UQ will be enough warmth. ike out
