Thanks, Dameon. You should really go out there before it gets too hot. We can talk about where to go if you don't want to do the whole trip next weekend. If you want, I can bring the trail guide to the swamp and you can borrow it.

solo is a wonderful way to go. I think you notice so much more detail and such. I made Kinsman and love mine. Very warm and smooth.
Thanks for all the pictures too.
Is that a Hennessy Hammock?
Thank you, Shug. I really enjoyed being by myself, even though I was a bit anxious before the trip. I met quite few people (maybe 15 or so) on the trail this time, it was spring break. So it was a perfect mix. I was alone most of the time, but every time I would meet someone and chat it gave me a little boost.
The hammock is a DIY asym based on headchange4u's tutorial. The bug net is not completely removable, but has a full-length zipper. So, it's like a top-loading Hennessy with a #3 zipper mod.
