    Congratulations to you both! I followed your journal until the ankle incident. Now I'm going to go back and read the whole thing.

    Thanks for the kind words. I encourage any folks interested in this type of journey to try and make it happen. Life is short.

    If there is a gathering in Mass or NH this coming year, that is my best chance of making it to a group hang.

    Just realized I missed the question asking 'what would you have done differently, with regards to hammocking'....

    1. I may consider making a larger tarp, width-wise. I am a tall and when packing up and setting up, I like to stand-up straight. If it is raining pretty hard, I like have the sides fairly low. I would probably add another 16" total width to the hammock so that it can be setup a little higher and still go lower on the sides.

    2. I would get in the habit of pulling out my hammock and letting it air out whenever staying overnight in a hostel or motel. I had an incident of mold.

    3. Before heading out, I wish I would have experimented a bit with unified stuff sack that had hammock, sleeping bag or top quilt, underquilt, and clothes. These all put together in one sack will stuff down smaller than the multiple stuff sacks once food bags are on top.

    That is it. Top of the list could be the air out, the other two would be just nice.
