I agree on the JRB pads - better price than Gossamer Gear.
You're right of course, once I get hanging I'll figure out a system. Maybe I'll remember my roots and put something up on my website to help others. But right now I'm venting my frustration from reading a zillion posts on this site, and having to roll the dice.
Assuming my WBBB shows up, (sure wish he'd hire the neighbor kid to update the website once in a while), I'd like to do a hang in the Coast Range while the weather is still crappy and test pad schemes.
