After a many year hiatus from hiking due to a back injury, I came to the conclusion that the hammock may be the secret weapon.
For car camping, I can use the Timberline tent with a twin sized airbed (pretty comfortable too). But since it takes up my whole pack, I don't think that it will work to well to get back out on the trail.
My Blackbird arrived today and I have a JRB tarp and driducks on the way. With perhaps a bit of work to Whisperlite #2 (I made the mistake of loaning #1 to someone who lost it and I may need to overhaul the seals), I'm thinking that a test run will be in order next week (or even this weekend).
Finally I want to say thanks for all of the good information here on hammock forums. I've managed to learn alot in the past few weeks of browsing and searching.
I wish that I had a cool name, but really, it's just Mike.
