Nice recommendation on the hammocking tarp. I’ve been looking at a few of those trying to balance the cost/coverage/packing size of everything. We have the first Birmingham REI store opening this weekend, so maybe I can find a good deal on one. I’ve been thinking about that method of reporting. I want to make sure that I can adequately capture the emotions of the day, as opposed to my tendency to “over process” a written account when I have the time to stare at it and revise everything to death. Maybe taking notes or doing a quick journal type of thing every day and then using that as a framework when I sit down and actually writing the real report after the trip would be a good compromise.
