    i'm hoping that if HE doesn't get a bridge hammock, that the soreness will begin to go away with in a few days.
    but you never know about those things. sometimes it takes a lot longer than you'd wish.

    Glad to hear HE is ok. I'll look forward to reading the story, nothing says interesting like a dead moose.

    Wait, his story involves a dead moose? BTW, what's the link to his Trail Journal again?

He needs to borrow a bridge hammock.

    Anyone willing to loan HE a bridge hammock please contact him at Nate@pocketmail.com. He has had to sleep on the ground .

    That's what I understand. Doesn't that just scream "fun"? Can't wait to hear the story. The linky to his TJ is right here.

    Oh it was fun until then. Thanks again for the help. I picked up and am going o use the hammock for the first time tonight at the hikers welcome hostel in Glencliff, NH. I can't wait to get a good nights sleep in a hammock again. It's getting better, but I have been waking up worse in the morning then when I went to sleep.

    BTW. I'll add something to my TJ and post it here later. But is entirely doable to hammock the whites. There is really only 1 night you will not be able to, and that is above the tree line around lake of the clouds. After and before that it is open. Everyone uses that as an argument against hammocks. I didn't see a single tent put up in that stretch.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Nice to know you're getting better. Man, you lay off forums for a few weeks and you miss all kinds of stuff.
