Thanks Flrider,
Had been regularly checking the weather reports before hand... just didn't sink in HOW cold the wind chill was going to be, went straight through me. Brrrrr.
Tooo long lazing in the sub tropics does things to the mind, forgotten what real weather was like !
Food was freeze dried Miso & Tufo soup, lightweight & supprisingly tasty.
Water scooped straight from the stream. Also have some scroggin (a mixture of dried fruit, nuts, seeds etc)within reach in my side pockets, so I dont have to take off my pack all the time. The heavier stuff was back at camp.

Thanks MAD777,
Combining hammocking, wilderness camping & fishing....has got to be a winner in my book & catching fish were the icing on the cake !
