This past weekend Tacky Hiker and myself took two friends of ours to the Sipsey Wilderness in north Alabama. We arrived late Fri. night at the parking area and camped near the car. The next morning we woke up and hiked to Eagle Creek Falls and Deer Skull Falls. I was able to try out my new DIY side-stretch gathered end hammock with my DIY tarp. The tarp and hammock worked like a charm. I also used smokeeater908's mini heat and Zelphs ridgeline pot for the first time in the field, and could not have been happier. Tacky Hiker was also able to try out some new gear. Overall we had a great trip and found a great camping spot for a future Sipsey hang.
