It's taken me a LONG time to finally get to this point, but I finally know the glorious feeling of passing out in my hammock after a long day on the trail.
The last time I was in the woods was probably 12 years ago, so this was quite a learning experience. I'm also a type 1 diabetic, so controlling everything that comes along with that was a real eye opener.
I was lucky enough to have an experienced friend who not only kept an eye on me the entire time, but lent me some gear to make the trip possible.
Saturday: Parking Lot -> Camp, Setup
Sunday: Mt. Marcy -> Pass Out
Monday: Back to car -> Drive Home
I encountered rain the first night and about 40* on the second night, but made it through dry and warm.
Yukon Outfitters Single Hammock
Whoopies and Dutch Clips
Kelty Noah's 12 on a Simple Single (w/beaners) ridge line
Thermarest Pad (borrowed)
0* Sleeping Bag (borrowed)
I'm not planning to head out anywhere this winter, so I'm going to use that time to spend some money and maybe start some DIY projects.
