6769[Hammock Camping] Re: Winter Kit (was Digest...)
- Sep 13, 2004I've stayed in my hammock about 8 hours max, however in the winter i
usually have a kampfire unless I am hiking all day (probably more
what you do on the AT) so I may not turn in till late. I can read
much easier in my hammock. In fact in a small tent I cant do much
of nothing comfortably. In the winter i usually get up early and
stike camp in the dark. whether I hike a while or fix breakfast
depends on how cold it is. If it is really cold i will probably
hike awhile (helps warm me up) till i find a good place to fix
breakfast and by 8 or so it usually has warmed up quite a bit.
Cours again the weather in Al is much warmer all around than you,
Jerry or Steve deal with.
