I hope to make some further weight saving tweaks after this trip, but I only put this list together this week so I had to make do with what I already owned and what was available locally (amsteel).
Hopefully dynaglide is for the next trip. And hopefully I don't need whoopie slings or straps if all works out, but if I do, thanks for the tip.
"Is there some problem with having 5.0 pounds of gear and three ounces of tree straps this weekend?" <- No, I guess? I don't think I said there was, but I'd rather eat food than tree straps if you made me choose. :p
No other trips with the hammock. I'll be with a guy who hammocks all the time and with others plus the ability to go to the ground in a shelter if need be.
"Did you get to SUL with your first set of gear, or did you get lighter over a period of time as you changed your gear? The path to SUL hammock hanging could also be done in increments." <- Nope, spent a lot of coin first searching for light but bang for buck items and have slowly migrated to "just get pay and get the lightest because it drives you nuts." :p So in the case of the hammock, other than the amsteel stop gap for this weekend, I'm not looking to "progress" as much as possible. But yes, the path to SUL can done slowly if someone wanted to just like their ground game. In my case I think I can do it w/ amsteel, and now.
