Re: Pack Hanging Methods
- Hi Jack,
I only have a dozen or so nights on the AT to bring to the table. I
put my food in an Ursack. I tie the Ursack to the fork of a tree and
then prop it upside down so the rain will run off the top instead of
into the top. If I am at a shelter that is not too crowded, I will
hang my ursack from one of the nails in the shelter to keep it dry.
I usually put my pack on the ground under my hammock. I have no food
it it and have not been bothered with rodents. I put my shoes into
the pack in case there is a rainstorm. It will keep them fairly dry.
For those with more experience: I have not hiked through porcupine
country yet (as far as I know). Where does it start on the AT? PA
somewhere? and how far north does it go? Was I in porky country when
I went to the Whites of NH a few weeks ago??
