    I've wanted to go there but don't trust my navigation yet.
    Cheers, Jay

    In every one of your awesome pics I was looking for snakes-Tigers,Browns!
    Why not stock up that cave-never know when the war will spill into OZ,could you
    tell if the cave had much/recent visitation?
    I've backpacked/paddle on the s.island of your neighboring country 3 years ago--no snakes in NZ!!!
    But thinking about the snakes in Oz I know why you love the hammock

    Yeah good idea. The cave doesnt see many people since its so remote, but I could stock stuff there for the coming judgment day terminator style

    No snakes seen on this trip. Had my eyes and ears open for them but nothing.

    No UQ in the BB pics? Whatcha using for insulation?

    Love the bush. Get to go on a hike out to Powelltown Vic- trouble is it's the end of June (brr!) and the people I'm going with don't trust hammocks... yet.

    my hammock gear weights total: 2430g (~86oz)
    Winter: total 2521 (~89oz)
    (see my profile for detailed weights)

    gram counter, not gram weenie!

    Hi T.H.

    Powelltown, sounds nice.


    For insulation I have a my DIY underquilt and also this

    I left them out of the picture cuz they are ugly and not worthy of a picture with the BB

    Hey, I like the windscreen pad.

    Was this trip recent? What kind of temperatures did you experience? I know it's NSW in comparison to me freezing here in Melbourne, but I'd be interested in your lows. (bonus, you can talk in Celsius and I'll understand without having to convert from Fahrenheit in google!)
