    One other useful happy accident type features with the snaps that my wife found to help with being too warm: if your TQ has snaps, you can snap it up and out of the way. She did that while I was...

    I got basically what you're considering but in the 15F version. It's my wife's main setup (while I would consider my main setup to be a warbonnet blackbird xlc with wooki xl), but I'm looking forward...

    We had intended to cook a trout or two over the campfire, but there was a fire ban in place due to the drought and we hadn't brought along a frying pan so that'll have to wait for our next trip. Even...
  9. White Cloud Wilderness: 5 days/4 nights and bonus overnight in the Sawtooths

    The wife and I took a week long trip out west. After checking reports for fire smoke and weather, we settled on heading into the white cloud wilderness starting at the Big Boulder Creek trailhead.

    That's what I did last weekend. Packed them in with the tarp instead of with the hammock. Used my camp towel to dry off the buckles and continuous loop as much as possible.

    You'll like it. I'll echo what hutzelbein said. XLC requires flipping the bugnet to reverse the lay, so more simple to just pick a lie after experimenting and stick with it. Sounds like you did that....

    May be a silly question, but when pitching your tarp low, do you match the slope of your hammock ridgeline? I guess if doing that, way better to have head end on downhill side of camp.

    It's definitely a pretty area, though I was surprised by how much of the trail was away from the river when I went. Glad you got to get out and enjoy it.

    Yeah, it's just too spectacular of an area for me to do halfway. If I'm going to go Wind River, the wife and I are going to need to be in better shape than our current 5 miles/day limit.
