I hiked the entire length Appalachian Trail during the six months in 2004 and finishing it up month and half in 2005. I am legally blind and hard of hearing (Usher Syndrome). For as many as four months my shelter was the Hennessy Hammock. The Ultralite Backpacker A-sym was home. Last year after I got a dog, well she thought it would be her toy, it is shredded. So, after that I got the Expedition Asym. I have Kelly Noah’ Tarp 12 to replace the Hennessy trap. Next summer I am planning to go for the Long Trail in Vermont. Trail name is Hiking Bear.
