    I think the recommendation was just a cheapie hammock to lounge in for the afternoons. Whether you get a tent or a hammock to sleep in, your choice. :)

    Or vice versa. Park at the southern end; shuttle to Erwin first; then hike back to your car. This will save you some driving, and make it easier for you to connect with the shuttle.
