    New Status-Epic Nerd Achievement Unlocked!

    So, chatting with my niece today, I mentioned to her that my wife and I had bought a NOOK for each other.

    I then mentioned to her that I loved it, and it was great to find out that I could re-charge it with my Nomad7/Guide10 setup I used for backpacking.

    I told her that I was now set up. I could hike miles into the woods, quickly setup my hammock and tarp, cook dinner and spend an hour or two reading my NOOK before bed. Get up in the morning, break down, setup to re-charge the battery while on the trail, rinse and repeat.

    Her response was: "Epic Nerd Achievement Unocked"!!!!

    I'm not sure if it was the hammock or the solar charger that did it.

    Dutch: Hammock is probably more weight but who wants to lay on the ground? I pee on the ground.
