    Thanks Fronkey. It has been harder than I expected, but that is a good thing.

    So far the one gear thing I wish that I would have done differently is that I made a Jerry chair out of a 3' x 6' piece of Tyvek. I wish I would have put grommets in the four corners and brought extra shock cord to use it as a weathershirld for my underquilt. I use it as a pack liner during the day. I haven't "needed" the uq cover but it would have made me more comfortable on one or two stormy nights.

    If this is your only "gear wish" at this point, I'd say you're having a great trip Bat. Thanks for the updates. Keep tearing up the AT!

    re weather shield for UQ. I have sewed a piece of cuben, (the lightest, .35/yd?) to the underside of my Uq. Adds little to wght. and acts as a permanant under shield for spindrift, and is a wind block too. gnome

    GO BAT

    He's doing great. A real inspiration. Doesn't use his sight as a crutch. He knows he has a problem and has learned to live with it. He's at Hiawassee Inn tonight headed for the bash in Franklin tomorrow. Was a real pleasure to be around.

    Heading out from the NOC this morning. Camped with Sgt. Rock two nights ago and I keep running into Stormcrow, both are great people.
