    So since you're definitely coming (Current odds 39 to 1), can we pencil you in to do a CrossFit demonstration around noon on Saturday? You can call it, "Crossfit for Hammock Campers.":lol:

    I agree. If you're committed to that 69 ounce (sixty-nine ounces!:boggle:) Snugpak Cocoon, you're better off with a basic netless hammock. The Chameleon is more of a centerpiece of your hammock...

    I can't get my 0* quilts in my 50L pack and still have room for other stuff. So when I do take the 0* quilts, I have to take my 70L pack.
