first hike in a long time, and first night in a hammock..
This will be very short since I had written a small novell and closed the tab by accident...
I just did my first hike since I was in the army 15 years ago. I'm out of shape, fat and without routine...
I had a 20 kilo load on my back and hiked 10 + 7 kilometers crossing 2 ridges the first day and 1 going back the 2nd day..
Had some problems with the sleeping pad, think that a underquilt would be better... The pad changed the shaped of the hammock and made it a bit uncomfortable.

Darn these tabs... I feel like a idiot, had written a very long and nice story about all this..
Any questions? please ask and I will answer..
If the hammock is rocking, don't come knocking

i do not remember the question, however i believe beer is the answer
When I hit the wrong button, I blame my "Fat fingers".
Glad you had a good time. I used to carry a pad as "Backup" but yea, without is (to me anyway) much more comfy! Go to a underquilt soon as you can, I suspect you will like it better.
When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.
PAIN is INEVITABLE. MISERY is OPTIONAL.
