Best of luck.
That's a valid statement, and I appreciate it. I'm already figuring that my girlfriend will go in my hammock with the appropriate top quilt and underquilt, and I will take one of the hammocks with a pad.
My sons and I are experienced Boy Scouts. My older son and I have over 80 nights of camping (each) including Philmont. My younger son is a First Class scout who has been camping for 4 years.
The purpose of this thread is to determine which pieces of my equipment will work best. If all else fails we'll go to ground where we are VERY proficient.
