    I'm house sitting for someone during the hang, but I'm free during the day. Will you folks be around for me to come say hi? Day trips?

    I'm a former hammock hanger, so I'm not sure I'm welcome :P....

    I think it is 16 ounces. It's been a long time since I weighed it and I don't have the scale anymore. But that's what my old gear list has.

    After all of that . . .
