    You guys are about to win another one. What's the least expensive hammock setup that won't disappoint, and will last a bit? I like all that I've seen, be they hennesy, J-or-B, or the udder one that stroke brain just lost. I like the average 1.5 pound weight. I don't get cold easy. I'm just kinda ready.

    The last thing was finding out from Geezer (GAME 95) while on the GA AT a couple of weeks ago that you could use your Lekis above the tree line and convert the hammock to a bivy. Cool.

    However, I like shelters. Probably has to do with the fact that I usually get there too late to get one during Spring Rush. During the Autumn, getting one whenever I want is a real treat for me.

    Just hike.

    No, that wasn't me. At one point I caught the Snow Bowl shuttle to Middlebury for the day to buy some supplies but that was the only bus I rode on the trip (besides the bus that brought me from Boston to Montpelier). The only place I stayed besides the trail was the Hyde Away in Appalachian Gap.

    For me the only thing I didn't like about the shelters was the mice. I can't sleep with mice running on top of me.

    Neo,

    I'm stupid; where are the pictures?

    I'm done with shelters, too. I did an eight-day section up there in September and the only bad night sleep I had was in Upper Goose Pond Cabin. It was my favorite spot of the trip and I stayed inside because I was having a great time with the caretakers and didn't want to be rude, but the SNORING. I don't want to be bothered by other people and their noise and I don't want to be worried about keeping others awake with mine.

    Hanging out with folks at the shelters for dinner then retiring to my Hennessy off in the woods is definitely the way I'll go from now on.

    Hey, look at that. I've checked out pictures at random, but never looked at the galleries before. That's awesome.

    Really great pics, neo. Good lord do I wish I was back out there instead of sitting at this miserable desk.
