    Great Job Shug! I am just about done with mine as well. I love looking at these videos right after the actual event. It takes me back to the place I did not want to leave in the first place.

    The Cascades falls area was so beautiful (along with many, many other parts of the State Park). Crossing that tree bridge was rather precarious indeed, I knew if I did it you would not be far behind...LOL. It was much harder coming back across!

    Due to a mix up at home with packing, I left my top insulation behind. Thanks again for loaning me the JRB quilt (hudson river I think) the last couple of nights. I was never even slightly cold. Also, thanks to Fin for loaning me his JRB quilt (Mt Washington I think but could be wrong) the first night. Also thanks to Fin for loaning me his Blackbird for the duration of the trip.

    Yep, that little stick was all I needed for my almost 200lbs. I am sure someone will chime in about toggle forces but it really does not take much of a stick to do the job. I could have gotten by with an even smaller one, but that was the first one I found. I am a whoopie sling/marlin spike/toggle man all the way now. I honestly can not see any reason to go to another suspension at this point. But, as always, Hang Your Own Hang...

    Yeah, that last one sounds better. I will just stick with the acronyms from now on. That way, at least people will THINK I know what they stand for..lol. HYOH

    Excellent - thanks for that, shug. I really needed that today. Can't wait to see the parts of the trail that I missed.
