    Talking howdy from central AL

    I met Cuffs in a local store, and we got to talking shop. Good stuff!

    I'm currently planning a trip for the 25th of next month into sipsey for 3 days and 2 nights.

    I need to make a purchase, and under $150 would be nice, so I'm looking really hard at the HENNESSY EXPEDITION ASYM CLASSIC.

    She also suggested I track this macentyre guy down and take a look at his pack setup!

    Hey bcause3y - I am in Birmingham and was thinking of selling my Hennessy UL Backpacker Asym. It is a few years old and is in perfect condition with the winter kit and whoopie/toggle strap suspension and the stock sil diamond fly. It is in perfect shape. I am selling just to clear out some stock. I recently acquired a warbonnet black bird and an obsession with DIY hammocks! Let me know what you think.

    Heck yea!

    What are you asking for it? I'm rather impatient, so if I can buy without waiting for shipment, its my preference.

    It sounds like someone is going to sell me an ultralight! (see above)
    Good news is, my trip isn't for a month, and we haven't even decided on what gear we are taking. We are trying to find a way to make it more challenging, such as taking no shelter, or a single medium knife, or maybe having to cover a lot of ground, who knows, but it'll be fun!
