A few friends and I are planning a 2 night backpacking trip in the Smokies. We might get on the AT, or just hike around GSMNP. Two of us (including myself) will be sleeping in hammocks. This would be my first backpacking trip with my hammock. I have a DIY 1.1 double, and I am in the process of making a bugnet. I also have a 12' Kelty Noah for me and another hammock.
What can you guys tell me about the weather? Would my 20 degree bag be cool enough to be comfortable at this time of year? That's the only type of insulation I have. I could also put my thermarest into my hammock and use a blanket on top. Got any tips for sleeping comfortably this time of year in the Smokies?
And any suggestions on where to go? We would probably like to do less than 10-12 miles per day, and it would have to be a round trip.
