    I think I won that in 2017. :) I was testing a newly home made 12' hammock and a home made Gemini under/top quilt combo. It was probably rated to 50F and it got down to 28F that night. I didn't...

    In retrospect, I think baking all the bread beforehand would be the best way to go. Sourdough bread lasts a lot longer than a yeasted bread does.

    I've only been once in 2017 so I don't remember the layout of the kitchen but are there any ovens in the kitchen? I'm thinking of doing some fresh sourdough bread. If not I can bake it before the...

    I can pack in a spare setup (hammock & tarp) if he wants to get off the ground. I don't have any spare quilts though.

    I just got an email this morning that the installer had to postpone. So I can make it, hiking in from Pats Friday late afternoon to Saturday late afternoon.

    As much as I would love to be there, I have a major piece of stained glass being installed at work that I need to be there for on Saturday and no one to work for me on Sunday. Have fun.

    That's exactly the path I took. I started out with a Hammock Bliss No-Seeum No More, which is very similar to the Skeeter Beater. I ordered some Hyper D 1.6 XL and made a 12 footer with SRL, CL's...

    Unlike the CDT & PCT, the Florida trail is best hiked in the winter. The 70 mile stretch running through the Ocala National Forest is some of the best of what the trail has to offer.
