    1) Warbonnet BlackBird 1.7 Double Layer. Pretty much the most comfortable hammock I've ever slept in.

    2) ULA Catalyst. I got mine this year not too long before the Winter Hang back in January. I love this pack!

    3) Caldea Keg. Had it more than a year, but it just rocks that much that I still love it.

    They'll work with about any 1' webbing based suspension system.

    Nah, not at all. Watch the video and all will be explained to you.

    Hehe - well, I hope she's talking about you b/c I'm only in NC for another 4 days! It's gonna be 1*F at the AF Academy this week and I'm gonna miss it, though!

    But I wonder if I can convince the AF to send me to Virginia sometime around the Winter Hang next year...we could ALL hike together then.

    That would be great! Sure won't be the same there w/o you for the first time
    Maybe HF could send a note to the AF on your behalf
