    Did you have to go to ground at all? If so, what did you use in lieu of a sleeping pad?

    Any chance you could share your AT hammock gear list?

    Thank you in advance.

    Sorry for (yet) another post, but I couldn't edit my older post. I changed my journal URL:

    Good luck on your hike. The Bteam will be doing trail magic on the AT between Tray mountain gap GA and north side of Dicks gap April 27-29. Last year at this time we met and fed around 60 threw and section hikers at Tray gap.Hope to see some of you late starters there.

    NEVER!
    I even took a very, very bad fall one night and still set the hammock back up. Actually, a couple of other hikers set it back up for me, since I was not physically able to do it myself. If I hadn't slept the rest of the night in the hammock, I fear what kind of shape my back would have been in the next morning. No ground...ever!

    Would be quite dated, since I went in 2008. Whole lot of changes since then. But, I'm happy to post it. The basics were:

    Warbonnet Eldorado
    Warbonnet Synthetic Yeti (prototype)
    JRB Rocky Mountain Sniveler (cold weeks)
    JRB Shenandoah (warm months)
    Warbonnet Superfly (prototype) (cold weeks)
    OES MacCat Standard in Spinn (warm months)
    Webbing and rings for suspension
    Grip-Clips for the Superfly as it was before panel pulls were added

    That was pretty much my hammock stuff. My girlfriend joined me for about 400 miles when it got a little warmer. Being a cold sleeper, she took my JRB RMS and Warbonnet Superfly and used them with my her TrekLight Double with a Speer SnugFit below.
    Trust nobody!
