$300 for all.
Dont wait too long, this is a good set up, someone is going to snatch it up.
BTW I am selling some things to finance a new hammock/quilt set up.
Thanks for looking.
$375, everything, shipped.
This set up is used but not abused.
Non-smoker, no pets.
5 nights total in shelters.
5 nights total in hammock.
This consists of a Mont Bell "Ultra Light Super Stretch Down Hugger #1 Long"...
Sounds like a good night to test your gear.
Thanks for the pictures and the report. One thing that might help next time, I use the gator-aid powders to mix up a drink on the trail. It keeps me from getting too weak sometimes.
Sounds awesome. Some pictures of that would be great. I have converted a few of my friends to hammocks, for the same reasons you listed.
I dont have a smart phone, and I like it that way, so far. Usually my only entertainment is a book. :)
Never slept in a tent, but I have stayed in a few shelters. Never again! Hammock all the way.
This is where I stayed 11-2-12.
It got down to about 34f that night.
Cool video! Looks like ya'll had a good time.
Nunnerys is mine & my kids favorite place to eat.
One of the few places I will eat onion rings.
Maybe we can try to meet up in the spring or fall.
Its probably good I did not see this until now. I was planning on doing the 20 mile hike today, but have been down with a sinus infection for the last 3 days.
I would have been tempted in going...
Awesome trip & gear report. Thanks for sharing.

I am a little late with this trail report, but here it is. This trip had been planed for several weeks.

Thanks for posting.
I go here a lot:
Its only about 20 min from me, about 2 hours from you.
Let me know if need a guide this fall.
Too hot & humid right now...
I was wondering if there was any interest in camping out this weekend at NBFSP.
I am tentatively looking at hiking in on Sunday afternoon and hiking out on Monday.
They have 3 shelter/fire ring...
Hate that this happened to you and your son. That would not be a good feeling.
It would be nice if the PIF box could come your way. From the way it sounds it is getting full anyway.
Sounds good to me. It would be nice to meet some of the members from here.
Welcome, from west TN.
This is a awesome and addictive site.:)
I am in west TN.
Howdy sir, welcome!
I am in Camden, TN.
No snow, yet, but I am sure we will have some by morning.
No problem Lee, I don't think I am going to be able to make it either.
If you plan on another time be sure to post it.
April should be a good time.
Or any time between now & then:D
Time & money. I would love to go to the wilderness week, that would be awesome. I would rather hike & camp in cooler weather. I will have to stay a little closer to home for a while. I am about 6...

I may be intrested. I will let you know for sure when the date gets closer.
I am in Camden.
Count me in. I have a few things to put in. I have made some paracord bracelets that I could add. Unless the box is full of them already.:)
Nice TR & pics. Thanks for sharing.
A lot of memories were made on that trip.:)
Great TR! Lots of camping wisdom there.:)
I assume you mean "Land between the Lakes"?
I am not far from there, maybe about 35 miles south of there.
I think the whoopie slings may be what you are looking for.
They are super easy to set up...
"Go ahead and get a Warbonnet Black Bird double. Built in bug net, rommy and very confortable. If you decide you do not like it you can list if for sell on the forum and it will sell in a few...
Satty, I just bought the Two Line Tarp Ridge Line from Opie here
To be fair I am a noob, and have only had this up twice in the backyard, but I really liked it.
I am sure some of the old hands...
Hey Jonesy, we have nearly the same set up, I have a crows nest on the way too. I got the whoopie slings, they are very nice. I sent my tarp back to Brandon to get some pull outs added. Cant wait to...
Dbl 1.7 WBBB, Big Mama, on the way.:D
Brandon has been very busy.
Please dont bother Brandon until he is finished with my order.
Never mind the fact that I had to call him to make a change to my order.:lol:
I ordered a 1.1 double on the 7th. Can't wait, weather is getting nicer everyday, I need to be out in the woods. I also ordered the Big Mambajamba tarp. I have whoopie slings on the way and a UQ from...
I hiked from Clingmans Dome to Cades Cove in November. Even at Rocky Top and Thunderhead you were not too far from trees. I would recommend staying near a shelter or campsite for water and also to...
