Thread: Hello!

  1. #1

    Hello!

    Hello everyone! Long time lurker and first time poster here. I recently got back from my AT thru, where I spent most of my nights warm, dry, and comfortable in my Blackbird. Just wanted to say thanks for all the great info!

    I do have an account on trailjournals, but it still needs a lot of work (I currently only have a few weeks on there). I did, however, keep a journal on paper and am planning on filling in all the holes in my trailjournals soon. My Blackbird worked perfectly; I actually stopped sleeping in it for a little while because it was too comfortable and I would go right back to sleep when I should have been hiking!
