    Linville Gorge

    Yet another spur of the moment trip for me. Decided to check out the big ditch since I've never been there. It's a sight to see, that's for sure. Super cold this time of year though and the wind didn't help.

    I put Stormcrow's 3/4 4 Season Phoenix UQ to the test. It passed with flying colors. A few adjustments made it perfect. I had to tie an extra knot or two on the longest shock cord to fit it tighter against my body. I'm assuming he provides plenty of excess for various sizes of hammocks. I'm quite happy with the purchase.

    Pictures below....











    Nifty little idea for my Petzl headlamp, strung it up on my tarp line for a lantern to read.
