So I'm leaving for Georgia in 11 months. When I think about the fact that I was originally supposed to be out there right now, I can't help but laugh. But regardless of that, I'm very glad we decided to push it back a year to train more, save more, and gear test more.
I've done a lot of upgrading to my setup with the help I've received here on the forums. I'm waiting on my modified Nano 7 with whoopies and bugsock from Randy "PapaSmurf", and my Zpacks 4 season tarp from Joe, which I found thanks to you guys, and keeps my combined hammock and tarp weight to under a pound. Of all the forums I visit HF.net is by far the most inviting and the most helpful.
Now I'm trying to figure out a sleep system that doesn't involve a different bag for every season (I sleep too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer.)
Anyway - I'm considering this:
Speer PeaPod (20* -- 36 oz)
Gossamer Gear Thinlight Insulation Pad 1/8" or 3/8" (2.5 oz -- 5.5 oz)
Sea to Summit Thermalite Reactor (Adds 15* -- 8 oz)
*I may consider adding down booties.
With this set up I think I'll be keeping things light, warm, and in the summer I can use the peapod as an UQ or send it home for a month or two.
Thoughts? Think it's worth making the investment and testing it?
