    Great video!

    I'll be watching if you do a Michigan hang up there this fall. I'd love to get in on that. Lots and lots of great trees to choose from!

    I did a portion of the MRT a couple of weekends ago with a 2 hammocking friends. We hiked south from the dam 6-7 miles and then back the next day. I really want to go back on a solo trip and do the whole loop.

    Would you suggest starting on the NCT side?
    The 1st hill up on the NCT side is a MONSTER! Best to get it out of the way on the 1st day. Great stealth site, at the north end of the NCT by the power lines, just past the creek. Take a lot of water the 1st day if you do the NCT side 1st no reliable water till the creek (mentioned above). Enjoy!

    There were 2 bad hills on the NCT side and it seemed like that side was worse but looking back at the elevation profile in the GPS shows there are more up downs on the MRT side they just aren't as long or big as the NCT side.

    If anyone is interested in the GPS data I'll post it.

    I'm trying to figure out how to post it at http://backpacker.com but haven't had success yet.

    The whole NCT side is up and down. All of those little draws and hollers, winding back and forth though the hills. There were a few bad ones on the MRT side, perhaps it was all the beer we had the night before the 1st day that made that hill seem so bad.
