-My trail name is Loner but my Whiteblaze and Hammock forums id is SnakeSesssion.
-Water treatment were tablets at first then changed to aquamira. But did not treat much from the Whites - on. Only once did the water look really bad.
-Nope I did not have a bug net the whole hike. There were a few really bad nights with little sleep and would recomend having the net mailed to you in the summer - then get rid of it when it cooler again.
-I did carry a little thing of bug spray when I would find it in a hiker box. But no sun screen.
-No cell phone (except the last 200 miles).
-Camera - Nikon Easy pix that takes two AA batteries. They last about a week.
-And yes my clothing was very skimmpy but guess I just don't need to carry as much as others. When it was in the 20s I would wear all three layers and sometimes my poncho as well.
Hope this info helps out and good luck to other AT hikes in hammocks! Also thanks to all for the support on the trail! Loner
Happy hangin! Jeff, aka Loner, aka SnakeSession
