Jeremy, looks like a well thought out list. I only have a couple of suggestions

150 foot of nylon line - that's about 4 times what you need!! If you find a tree that high, I doubt you could get the line over the limb anyway.

4 pair of socks - I'd say you could drop at least one pair.

You don't say what your start date is. If you're starting in March or early April, I would say you need something a little warmer than an exp. wt. capilene zip-t for a warmth layer. That would work in warmer weather but you'll want something nice and toasty for those cold nights in the GA mountains.

You might also think about a long sleeve, coolmax type shirt. Nice for around camp and to hike in on those "cool" days.

Good job!!
