I've been accumulating gear for a while. As a student, I try to be relatively frugal and look for the best deal so amassing my gear load out has taken me a little while. Here is what I am looking at right now. Let me know if I am missing anything for my first hammock adventure on an overnight
Pack: Kelty Courser (says 40L, i think its larger - great size that doesnt permit me to overpack)
Insulation: Pad (foam) + Synthetic Bag (Vaude Sioux 900 30 deg)
Hammock: ENO Double + Whoopies + Tree Straps
Tarp: DIY Sil nylon 9x5 (nice and compact)
Those are the basics, I am pretty sure I have all the other stuff down. Let me know if you think I am in OK shape for just an overnight.
I live in Harrisburg, PA. I noticed there are a lot of other guys around here from the area. Can anyone recommend any good spots where I don't have to hike TOO far in? Just in case something goes wrong....
Here are my thoughts:
Peters Mtn Shelter / Table Rock/ Hawk Rock/ Sneak into Big Boyd from Hocker Park on Blue Mountain/ Clarks Ferry Shelter/ Get a campsite at Pinchot (boring)
Thanks! I'm looking forward to getting out there!
