I am doing this section hike in July and can't decide if I should take my tent or hammock. Just a few questions for you guys.
1. I have a Castaway paraschute hammock that I love, I have never slept a full night in it though but have snoozed in it several times when camping. It is super comfortable. Anyway I also have a big agnus mummy pad that holds heat, I thought of using that as my pad on the hammock to trap heat then using a sleeping bag or quilt (summer in georgia is pretty warm even in the mountains). For netting I have purchased a netting device made for emu hammocks but will fit on mine just the same. I am also going to buy a tarp for the rain.
2. I use a peak 1 cobra tent I have had since 1998. this is a two man tent however only has one pole, it weighs 3lbs and I love it. I love the extra room it gives me to store my pack inside.
My hammock set up is a little lighter, not sure on the exact weight but I know the hammock is lighter.
Which do you think I should use on my trip and any tips or suggestions?
