    Georgia AT Fun last weekend

    Did some more trail time with my brothers-in-law up on the AT in GA... Woody Gap to Hogpen Gap overnighter... Wanted to do more, but my knee was giving me problems after the up-and-down of Wildcat Mtn... I'll train up a little better and pack lighter next time!
    First time out with my sleeping bag conversion underquilt, which performed great! Got the older NorthFace bag at my favorite thrift store for 2 bucks, sewed in some loops, tied off to my DIY hammock, and BANG!!! Comfort and convenience down to around 30 degrees... For about $30 including tarp, amsteel whoopie slings, and DIY straps...

    I'll see if I can get some more pics of the UQ up this weekend... dead simple, and worked great! A little bulky, but it has really inspired me to get a little more crafty and see if I can make a more dedicated UQ that is lighter/more packable...
