    Mbiraman, campsite #86 is huge. There are probably 7-8 different coves or sections to it. The southern-most part could probably accommodate 10 tents! We counted four sets of bear cables.

    What Length and Why?

    Other than the lower weight and cost, why would you choose a 2/3 UQ instead of a full length? Also, any hangers ever trade or return your 2/3 for a full?
