    at thru hiking.

    I have used my wbbb all thru the Smokey mountains. I know the rules. I hung mine in the shelters and it worked fine. Very comfortable. In hot springs,nc now. I have lots of great pics but can't load them from phone.I went as far as the teens. It was pretty cold but my homemade underquilt kept me fairly warm in the hammock. I used a black army sleeping bag that I cut and sewed and it hangs from shock cord through channels.its synthetic st s heavy and bulky but it worked. I'll get a forty degree ya and uq next month and that should work fine.
    Forgive the errors. Small phone, fat thumbs and low battery.
    Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
