Hey gRaFFiX, LOL I have a buddy in Twin that I have done some day hiking with and have been talking about getting into a hammock. He wants to check out the BB I got a couple weeks ago. I was using the other pice of new gear that I neglected to mention, a Pentax E70 camera to shoot all my pics. I used to shoot semi-professionally with Pentax SLR gear but we have been wanting a new compact for hiking and getting pics of the kids around the house. To be honest I am not sure if I like the camera at all. I seamed appealing cause it uses AA batts and was only $100, but I think it is a bit slanted on the get what you pay side a bit more than the great quality I have always seen from Pentax. The lens seems to have a lot of distortion all around the edges, and the "macro" focus is more like a "kind of close focus" at 1-1.5 foot as close as it can get. We might send it back and save for a bit better one. I really like the "W" series from Pentax but at $300 and running on a rechargeable batt(just don't know if I can get enough life out of it for longer trips without carrying 2 or more) I just don't know what we will do.
