    I'll have a couple of 50' paracords with me but we'll need someone to probably bring more.

    I don't need to make my pack lighter. I need to make my (_*_) lighter.

    Sounds like we are going to have a mini-hamfest at the hang! My buddy that is hoping to attend is also a ham, Andy, N4LAG. I will never claim to be the smartest ham, but I hope that I may have learned something in so many SOTA activations. Radio is a great hobby that you can put down when life takes you in other directions and pick back up later when things slow back down.

    I have a large 16' Kelty Noah's tarp that I can bring if we need some covered area away from the campfire. Easy enough to throw in the truck just in case. A tip I picked up from a car camping friend is that ratchet straps make awesome ridgelines and tensioning devices for tarp cities.
