    I was just looking at your list and it looks like you are expecting warmer temps then I was on my winter hike.

    I'm thinking for my next winter sub 10 trying over at Wigg Meadow and such in Cherokee.
    This week predictions for low/nighttime temps in that area is Mon/18, tues/20 & wed/27.

    If it were to be in single digit temps at night I would prepare with more layers to sleep in at night.

    So when I say winter those in MN or Canada or other colder weather locations may call it spring temps

    sure! gives me a new project to work on!

    speaking of clothes. Next weekend I might go out in train as you fight mode. meaning I wear what I wear when I'm in uniform. Tho when I'm with state guard - half the time I can usually hop in the car & sleep but will be good practice.

    That's a neat idea, a bit of a dumb question but how many sticks do you need to slip under the amsteel?

    EDIT:
    Sorry meant to also ask ...

    What do you use to attach the whoopies to the tree straps? Is this where the biner comes in? Any chance of a piccy?

    Sounds good. We can meet somewhere around the North Ga or TN boarder. I think it would make for a good hang. There may be some other UL around that want to get in. The DRT, BMT, and AT create lots of opportunities.

    GLP -- Take a good ole scenic ride down rt81.. get enough people together you'd be in TN/GA border in no time

    Shewie.. I just grab sticks -- maybe 6?.
    The suspension is amsteel tree straps ---> dutch biner --. dynaglide whoppie slings to hammock.

    Note - I am 110lbs and have no idea what my suspension would be rated to. but I'm confident with my weight my suspension is safe for me. this may not work for other depending on your weight & if you ate as much as I did tonight

    Thank you Bob! The southern woods is a new journey for me (after living in NJ & MA) - I see something new each time.

    Will be sure to take many pics.
