I will be hiking the entirety of the SHR this summer (late July through early August) and am hoping to get some advice and expertise from some members who have already hiked the route.
My question is what kind of shelter did you bring with you? I'm planning on sheltering exclusively in a WR bivy (MLD SuperLight), but I'm thinking some additional protection might be in order as well. I have a handful of different tarps/shelters of varying sizes, but I'd like to know what you brought along for your standard shelter or for the possible bad weather.
Is carting my cuben DuoMid overkill for the precip I'd see mid summer? Could I get away with a simple 8.5'x4' flat tarp + bivy?
I'd love to hear any thoughts you might have and, of course, any other advice for this trip would be most welcome.
