Why hello all you hangers out there in hammock land! I'm a total noob to this hammock thing, and a big dork of one at that. I love hiking, but have never had a good nights sleep on the trail, so this is worth a shot. Maybe it'd be a lot cheaper to give a neoair a shot, but I think knots are cool. Yay knots!
Pending vacation time approval from boss women, I'm planning a thru-hike of the SHT in early July. It will be my SHT-ty vacation. I'm aiming for 12 days. Going to be a mix between vacation, spirit walk, and high-mileage. I'd like my minimum to be 25 miles a day, but I also want the option to hang out if I find really cool spots.
So here's my hammock set up so far:
Grand Trunk Nano 7
Hammock Gear Phoenix 3-season UQ
Whoopie Slings and Straps
Things to get:
MacCat Micro SpinUL
Top Quilt: thinking the Summer Burrow
Smurf's bug sock
This is what I've been able to put together by watching Shug's and ProfessorHammocks videos, and reading through these forums. How'd I do? Should I go with the 3-season TQ, or is the summer one enough. I generally don't go colder than low 30s.
Peace out. Namaste ya'll.
