My Locale Midwest
About Me I am in my late-40's and really got interested in backpacking about 10 years ago as a way to have some concentrated time with my boys, now all finishing up high school or in college. I try to get out a few times a year, including a bi-annual trip to Colorado for some of the big stuff. Otherwise I am stuck in the very boring midwest where everything exciting is a good day's drive away.

Head lamp with lantern attachment

Nano 7 Hammock
Good thread. I just got the Exped Syn 7 L/W pad that is sooo comfortable but I'd have to say my Nano 7 hammock with tulle bug sock and reconfigured suspension with whoopie slings. For about 1...

Nico, give the Schnozzel a look. It's excellent for inflating your Synmat and makes and excellent dry bag for your bag.

BA Fly Creek 2 Platinum
I recently got the Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 2 Platinum and am impressed. All in at 2 lbs with stakes and guy lines and while small for two, a lot of room for one. I am 6' tall, 250 lbs, use a E...

for breaks
I use my Nano 7 just for breaks and relaxing at the end of the day. I've not tried a hammock as my main shelter so can't speak to that. I'm 6' and 250 lbs and find the Nano 7 pret...

smaller bags
The pot seems large enough to me--I would do some dry runs before the hike to test it out. My other thought is for convenience sake do seperate freezer bags for you and your wife and package your i...

I have both
I have both of Papa Smurf's/Dream-Hammock's bug socks. The tulle weighs in at 2.1 oz but is very delicate. I ripped a hole in it the first time out just by letting it hit the ground. Won...

I read from time to time references to the midwest GGG or a GGG on the west coast in these forums. What is it?
