My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: Advice needed on Hammock Setup
I have the same hammock, however, after one night of trying to use a 20" ccf pad I decided a pad inside a hammock was not the way for me. I have often wondered if a wider pad would have been d...

8D For the quilt
If you are wanting to go inexpensive and light weight I would suggest looking at the 8D material that Ti Goat sells. It is $8/yd and has a total finish weight of around 0.7 oz, except this will bre...
