    So, Drewboy, you live in or near Phoenix, at about 1100 feet? I don't see how you handle the altitude change for a quick overnighter! A 10000 foot change in your altitude from one night's sleep to another, Wow!

    But if y'all can handle it, then good on 'ya! Either way, I'm envious of those Aspens and Douglas Firs and Spruces you will be camping in, high above the rest of the world!

Isolated thunder showers and possible snow showers in the forecast, with lows in the low 30's. Doesn't get any better than that! The temps down here in Phoenix have already broken through the 100 degree barrier. I'll be hanging in my new WB SL 1.7 Traveler, now my lightest hanging rig at ~15oz incl suspension. I loaned out my WB Blackbird DL 1.1 to a friend for this trip, who has become a hammock convert and is looking to upgrade all his gear. I'm sleeping under a Maccat Deluxe, and he'll be using my Speer 8x10 tarp. I'll be using my Te-wa underquilt and loaning my Nest to my friend for his bottom insulation. He's going in style on his first hang! We have a couple of other people along on this trip who are already extremely interested in hanging, and I'm sure will be converts by the end of the trip.

    That's my concern with going to CO this summer. Living below sea level then going to 6000 or so overnight, then up to 10 or 14.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Well I always wanted to be heli-vaced. I went through the training that should that helicopter go down in the ocean on the way to the hospital I know how to get out.

    NO YOU DON'T!
    It is very expensive! Very EXPENSIVE! I had my student loans repaid years before I got that ride paid off. 7 minutes was over $15,000. That was my share after insurance paid the maximum they would pay for ambulatory transport. Not something I'd like to do again.

    That is the reason I am planning on getting evac insurance for the next adventure.

    Yardwork, Graduation parties, and Mother-in-law flower box planting. Then I hope to just relax in my hammock in the backyard with my pup.
