I just want to say thanks for the help, insight and info here on the forum. I will be heading to the HikerHostel Monday morning and I will start the approach trail Tuesday.
I will be carrying my DIY hammock and a tent. Once it warms up I will mail the tent home.
I will be on trailjournals. just look for scruffy / Bryan Dennis. I requested a direct link but the system dosen't want to give me one.
See ya on the trail ....
