    Man! that shelter looks the bees knees. And I love the shape, if Andrew Skurka can does what he does in 1 of those duomids u are gonna be rocking.

    Don't forget that there are huts all the way on the overland track so u wouldn't hardly ever have to set up a shelter if u didn't want to.

    Phillipsart what are your thoughts on the phoenix UQ?

    Cheers Simon,
    I read reports on loud snorers keeping others awake at night, and the smell and noise. I prefer my own quiet spot. I doubt i will use any of the huts, particularly if theres a lot staying in them and theres all the scavengers I keep reading about, not the feathered or furry variety, the human variety,

    I been told and read many hikers go unprepared and scavenge food from other hikers. I also read that many go over prepared and cant give away there food quick enough, so I guess in the end it all works out.

    It would probably very amusing and entertaining in the huts to see what others carry. I believe someone even carried a esky with ice on the Overland Track.

    Entertaining is the word
    Not my scene either, that's why the whole hammock thing is so attractive. No need to camp right next to the other guy.
    I lived and worked in a hostel in Byron bay for a period and that is kinda the hut type of dynamic...
    No need to annoy people with my snoring either...

    Welcome to another Tassie person!

    On a side note I did overland track and hammocked at the designated campsites every night fine, recommend off season though as free's up more spots - have youtube videos of the walk.
