    The Actual Trip Report - At Last

    Ok so here it is. The long awaited trip report. For those of you who want to read the entire thing and see the pictures follow this link ---> Trip Report to Mt. Mitchell

    Here is the Reader's Digest version...

    The trip started off very smoothly. It was like travelling with my own private tour guide. Travelling along the parkway was like stepping back in time by two months. With the elevation change the temperature dropped a total of 30 degrees. When we finally made it to the site the outside temperature was 41 degrees*Fahrenheit*with winds topping out at 45 mph. Needless to say this made putting up the tarp a little tricky but luckily there was still some daylight left. Saturday was wonderful. The temperature topped out at 67 degrees and there wasn't a cloud in the sky. Better yet, the wind didn't start back up until well after sunset. The activities for the day consisted of; breakfast, hike to the top of the mountain (from the parking area of course), nap, lunch, hang out around the campfire, dinner (cube steak and sweet potatoes cooked in cream of chicken in the dutch oven) and then blissful sleep.

    Here is a list of the hammock gear used for the trip:
    • Kelty Noah's Tarp 12x12

    • DIY 1.1 oz Double Layer Hammock w/ adjustable ridgeline

    • Whoopie Slings

    • Tree huggers

    • Dutch Clips



    • modified mummy bag/top quilt
